Burnside West Christchurch University Cricket Club or BWCUCC is a cricket club that plays at Burnside Park, Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand. It is one of the oldest cricket clubs in Christchurch, having been established in 1905.[1]

As of the start of the 2016/17 season the club has 11 adult teams which play in several grades in the Christchurch Metropolitan Cricket Association. The club also has 10 junior Saturday teams in the Christchurch Junior Cricket Association leagues. They also have a very well supported Friday night league for younger cricketers (school years 1-3) who are just being introduced to the game.

While the club has benefited from several mergers over the years from the West Christchurch Cricket Club, which then merged with University Cricket who were at Ilam Fields, Christchurch, and then subsequently they merged with Burnside Cricket to form the new club and to further establish Burnside Park, or as cricketers would call it, Burnside Oval.

BWCUCC has had several players represent both the provincial team of Canterbury cricket team and internationally with the New Zealand national cricket team

History of the Club[edit]

The first meeting of the West Christchurch club was held on August 31, 1905 at Municipal Chambers Building on the corner of Worcester Street and Oxford Terrace, presided over by Canon Hare. The colours of the club were registered as dark and light blue, and the crest was the rampant lion with the raised tail that is still part of the present club's emblem.[2]

Committee Members[edit]

At the 111th AGM of the club in 2016 the following positions were passed. The Chairman is Greg Belton-Brown, Doug Allcock (Treasurer), Gareth Gibson (Secretary), David Robertson, Peter Burke, Brett Thomson, Shane Young and Dan Vedder all form the committee.
