We usually train on weekends, and have one mid-week fixture in the afternoon. We play in Michaelmas and Hilary terms only, up to 18 games in total.
We have several socials a term, with a big emphasis on playing as a team at a good-level. We also have a second team if you want to play less-formal football.
We have had a successful womens team joint with Mansfield these last few years, who play on the weekends.
The squad is a mixture of grads and undergrads with the current split around 50-50. All abilities are welcome to come along to training to stake a place in the team.
Captain: Christopher Major (christopher.major(at)mansfield.ox.ac.uk)
Our Cricket team, combined with Mansfield, is one of the most successful college teams, reaching the final of Cuppers last year and coming 2nd in the league. Our pitches are great and close by, and there’s no better way to spend an Oxford afternoon! The games are 40 overs a side and are played in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. We also have a seconds team which is relaxed to the point of falling over, and great fun to play in, or a great way to take up the sport.
Men’s Captain: Johnathan White (jonathan.white(at)merton.ox.ac.uk)
Women’s Captain: Katharine Pates (katharine.pates(at)merton.ox.ac.uk)
There is also an informal league ran within the college – the league is open to all, with a beginner’s division for novices, it’s very informal and a great way to improve your squash and meet other students.
Captain: Christopher Mockford (christopher.mockford(at)merton.ox.ac.uk).
It is predominantly an individual / Uni based sport (except for once a year when we host Cuppers in a local park) and we’ve had a couple of Half-Blues in recent years!
Captain: James McMillan (james.mcmillan(at)merton.ox.ac.uk)
The Merton Men’s Tennis Team currently plays in Division 1 of the College League. These matches consist of a four-man team playing both singles and doubles games against each of the other Colleges in the Division. We also enter Tennis Cuppers, which is a doubles knock-out tournament consisting of six-man teams. Both competitions are played during Trinity term.
There are practice sessions held on Saturday mornings throughout the year for players of all abilities. If you are interested in playing socially or competitively, please contact Ose Ikhena (ikhuemose.ikhena(at)merton.ox.ac.uk).
Although the emphasis of the Club is on the League and Cuppers, a number of Inter-College VIIs tournaments are held in the summer – this includes a mixed touch tournament which encourages women to get involved.
