Squads train throughout the winter at the University’s state of the art Sir Christopher Ondaatje Devon Cricket Centre, under the watchful eye of a specialist coaching team before embarking on an intensive pre-season programme in the run up to the outdoor season. With BUCS indoor cricket and a fantastic intra-club league, cricket certainly doesn’t take a back seat during the winter months in Exeter. With unparalleled facilities, a thriving social scene and unique camaraderie, EUMCC is the premier club for the national summer sport in the South West.
