Play for the Bears

The UTS North Sydney District Cricket Club is a premier sporting club at UTS competing in the Sydney Premier Cricket Competition, a feeder for the NSW State Team.

Our club fields 5 Men’s grade teams, with our 1st grade team competing in arguably the strongest club competition in the world. Launching in season 2018/19 UTS North Sydney will field an U15 and U18 Ladies teams in the Brewer Shield Competition. We are striving as a club to launch a full Woman's grade structure for season 2019/20 comprising of three grade teams.

We strive to create an environment to produce first class cricketers, and to enhance that pathway, we provide a coaching staff of ex-first class cricketers who bring their own experiences to drive performance. Complementing our coaching structure are some of the finest grounds in NSW, with our first grade cricket played at the iconic North Sydney Oval.

The Bears is the place for cricketers with a passion for the game and a desire to wear the Baggy Blue.

National University Championships

Each yUni Gamesear we send a team to compete at the National University Championships where we compete against the best student cricketers from across the country. This is the pinnacle for student cricketers with the winning team being chosen to represent Australia at the World University Championships. The UTS team has featured in the top 4 every year since 2011 and were Champions in 2014 and 2018.

The 2019 National University Championships will be held in Adelaide in late November.
