There are a total of 63 College teams in total, organised into 4 Ladies Leagues and 3 Mixed Leagues, and you are encouraged to get involved in them throughout Michaelmas and Lent Term

There are league matches every weekend,  with a range of abilities so everyone can get involved! It’s a great way to get involved in college sport at Cambridge.

Rules & Code of Conduct

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Only resident ‘bona fide’ student members of the University (undergraduate or postgraduate) are eligible to play in the League or Cuppers. For the purposes of this regulation a ‘bona fide’ student is defined as one who is in statu pupillari and is therefore:
    – a matriculated member of a college; and
    – currently reading for a recognised degree of the University; and
    – fulfilling the University residence requirements in both time and place.
  • If – and only if – prior permission is obtained from the League Secretary, the following members of the University may also compete:
    – other members of the University (e.g. fellows or employees), affiliated to a college; or
    – members of the University who are not affiliated to a particular college (who may play for any college).
  • ‘Bona fide’ degree students at Anglia Ruskin University are deemed to be equivalent to college students (see (1)).
  • Members of the Clinical Medical and Veterinary Schools may also compete as separate colleges and/or for their own college.
  • Visiting students officially recognised by the University or a college are eligible provided they satisfy one of the above requirements.
