MCC University Centre of Cricketing Excellence
The University in association with Cardiff University and Cardiff Metropolitan University have formed the Cardiff/Glamorgan Centre for Cricketing Excellence, as part of a national scheme run by the England and Wales Cricket Board.
The Cardiff/Glamorgan Centre is one of only six UK Centres that have been developed to ensure that the best young cricketers can combine higher education with opportunities to develop their cricket. In 2007 and 2009 the Cardiff/Glamorgan Centre won the championship and in 2010 the BUCS league.
