VARSITY MATCH

The annual Varsity Match against Oxford is the highlight of our calendar!

The modern format involves five teams, M1, M2, M3, W1 & W2 playing 6 singles and 9 doubles matches each, making the final score out of 75, with 38 required to win.

The first Varsity Match was held in 1928 in Cambridge, then involving only one (male) team of 6. A match has taken place every year since, barring a hiatus during the second world war (and due to COVID-19? Yet to see). Between 1928 and 1993 Oxford won only 6 matches, however since then both universities have had winning streaks lasting several years.

In 2019 CUBaC ended an 8-year Oxford winning streak, taking a triumphant 49-26 overall victory, and winning 4 of the 5 teams.

Unfortunately Oxford stepped up their game, started training even earlier in the morning than us, and took a narrow 43-32 victory on 29th Feb 2020.
