University-Grange Cricket Club is based in Dunedin, New Zealand with teams in all grades of senior club cricket.
Acknowledging our History.
The University and Grange Cricket Clubs merged in 1986-87 with immediate success. Both clubs had plenty of success beforehand, winning or sharing a combined 28 senior titles before coming together to claim a title in their first year together.
Grange, which was formed in 1880, won its first title in 1888-89 and collected or shared in another four titles before the dawn of the 20th century. It won four consecutive titles in the early 1920s and back-to-back titles in 1948-49 and 1949-50. Its last title as a separate club was in 1981-82. In all it won or shared in 23 senior titles.
University had a long history as well and won three consecutive titles from 1968-1970.
University-Grange is working towards restoring that title-winning success, and want to return to the scenes of their last triumph as a club in 2003-04.
The club has had a number of successful alumnus, including internationals (White Ferns captain Suzie Bates, Black Cap Will Somerville, ex-Black Cap Aaron Redmond and Sarah Tsukigawa) as well as domestic representatives (Andrew Hore, Sam Wells and Michael Bracewell).
In the 2018-19 the club fielded a team in the senior grade competition for the first time in four years and will be looking to build on this in the 2019/20 season and beyond.
Strengthening our future.
We at University Grange Cricket Club will foster and develop the game of cricket for all individuals. We aim to do this by building an environment based around our core values: Inclusive, Motivated, Competitive, Sustainable, Development.
More specifically the club blends experience and youth, students and workers to craft a playing environment that is both enjoyable and conducive to good cricket.
More recently the club aims to provide a platform aimed at bridging the gap into senior cricket for promising high school aged players.
