Varsity

The highlight of every season is the Varsity Match, which pits our Blues teams against their equivalents from the University of Cambridge. The first Varsity Match was held in 1925, and was won by Oxford. As of 2016, there have been 85 Men’s Varsity Matches, with 39 Oxford wins; and around 42 Women’s Varsity Matches, with 13 Oxford wins of the 21 we have records for.

The 2016 Varsity Match was held on the 20th of February, at the RAC Club on Pall Mall, which has a rich 100-year plus history of squash. Oxford won both the men’s and women’s matches 5-0. The 2017 Varsity Match will take place on Saturday 18th February, once again at the RAC. The women’s match will be first, starting at 1:30 pm, and the men’s match will follow at 4 pm.

Our Squirrels and Ferrets play a 2nds Varsity Match, held in either Cambridge or Oxford (alternating annually). The 2017 2nds Varsity Match will be held in Cambridge on Saturday 4th March.
