Varsity 2011

The Cambridge University Association Croquet Club run an inter-collegiate knockout tournament Cuppers as well as raising a team for the annual Varsity Match against Oxford.

Announcements of opportunities to play and general updates will be made on this site, by email, and via the Facebook page. To sign up to the mailing list, enter your full email address in the box below.

Croquet practices take place throughout the Easter Term, alongside Cuppers. The club also plays a number of external fixtures, culminating in the annual Varsity Match against Oxford. For the 2017 season, there is a new arrangement with Newport Croquet Club allowing prospective Varsity team members use of their excellent lawn facilities at a vastly subsidised rate.

If you would like to get involved, or have any questions, please contact our President, Craig (cpw42).


Croquet is a relaxing game that combines strategy and physical skill. CUACC exists to promote it at all levels in the University - whether you're after a quiet afternoon in the company of friends and a jug of Pimm's or the challenge of competition play. Easy to pick up, croquet is nevertheless a difficult game to master.

CUACC accommodates all abilities from novice to expert. We're happy to provide a basic introduction to the game irrespective of strength, sex or age: Come along and give it a go!

It is unfortunate that the best croquet weather coincides with the exam period, but the value of a break from the airless library out in the sunshine should not be underestimated!
