About Star-University CC

Hamilton Star University Cricket Club is one of Hamilton’s oldest, largest and most successful cricket clubs.
The club was founded prior to World War I, before merging with Star Cricket Club in the early 1950s, and eventually aligning with Waikato University in 1983.
Based at Waikato University, where the club co-owns a three-net covered training facility, Hamilton Star University Cricket Club fields five senior men’s teams in Hamilton Cricket Association competitions – Premier, Senior A, Senior B and Senior C.
The club’s recent highlights have included trophy-winning victories in the Premier One Day Cricket completion (Hec Holland Plate, 2012-2013), Premier Two Day Cricket competition (Eddy Marr Bowl, 2013-2014, 2014-2015) and a long-awaited victory in the Premier Three Day final (Howden Cup, 2013-2014, and a repeat victory in 2014-2015).
Over the past three years, Hamilton Star University CC has provided a number of players to the Hamilton team: Ben Speake, Steven Rae, Brett Sorrenson, Freddy Walker, Devon Singh-Parhar, Brenton Thompson, Elliot Santner and Arnie Yugaraja. Brett and Steven are both recent Hillary Scholars at Waikato University, while Arnie and Waikato Valley representative Sam Cooper are currently enrolled in the Hillary programme.
The club is managed by a 12-man board with a range of personal and professional backgrounds, including Waikato University students and alumni. The club is the preferred option for many university cricketers and for the 2015-2016 season has attracted a number of new players, including several overseas students and migrants who have moved permanently to New Zealand from other countries. Hamilton Star University Cricket Club’s player roster in recent years has men from the West Indies, India, Australia, Sri Lanka, England, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Pakistan and Wales, as well as Maori and Polynesian New Zealanders, making it the most multi-cultural club in the city.
The club prides itself on organisation and structure, and is focused on retaining and enhancing traditional club cricket culture – blazers, baggy hats and social functions.
