Burnside West Christchurch University Cricket provides playing, coaching, and administration opportunities for all ages and skill levels.
Burnside West Christchurch University Cricket provides opportunities for boys and girls of all ages. Whether they are picking up a bat for the first time or want to play in a representative competition we can cater for them.
We have teams in the top three CMCA competitive morning grades who play a mixture of Two Day, One Day and Twenty20 cricket, as well as social afternoon grades who play 40 over or Twenty20 cricket.
North West Women’s Cricket is a collaboration between Burnside West Christchurch University Cricket and Merivale Papanui Cricket clubs, providing cricket pathways for Girls and Women. Follow us here: https://www.facebook.com/nwwcricket/
Are you a university student studying in Christchurch, and looking for your cricket fix? Burnside Oval became the home of university cricketers in Canterbury when the West Christchurch University Club was part of another merger with the Burnside Cricket Club in 1972.
Our club is a hub for developing players. We provide cricket pathways for High School age players through our North West Youth Cricket programme with playing and coaching opportunities for those in Years 9 to 13.
If you just want to play cricket, but aren’t interested in participating at a competitive level, give social afternoon grade cricket a try. From 40-over matches, to short Twenty20 games, there is something for everyone.
The club welcomes Honorary membership with an annual subscription cost of $30.00.
You can download the BWCUCC Honorary membership form which has all the information required to join.

The ‘Pride” comes from our club crest of a Lion and being part of the pride, as well the pride we have in our club.
This membership is also an option available for playing members who are in a position and wish to do more for the club. The “Jack Kerr Pride” members will receive exclusive communication & invitation to events. The additional funds raised by these members will be spent on directly improving the club and players. Jack Kerr Members will have a direct say in where the funding is to be used.
Secluded away in the trees in a private corner of Burnside Oval, and with a panoramic view of the cricket fields from its balcony, the Burnside Cricket Pavilion is an ideal and relaxing venue for anything from a small group gathering to a daytime corporate function to a night-time party.
