Bullingdon Green was a cricket ground in Oxford, Oxfordshire. The first recorded match on the ground was in 1843, when Oxford University played the Marylebone Cricket Club in the grounds first first-class. During that same year they played Cambridge University in the grounds second and final first-class match.[1] The ground continued to hold cricket fixtures until at least 1879, when the last recorded match on the ground saw the Bullingdon Club play I Zingari.[2]

The exact location of the cricket ground is unknown, but the wider "large open space" of Bullingdon Green formerly stood between Horspath and Cowley.[3]
