Varsity Match & Archives

The Varsity Match

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 2019, there have been 88 Men’s Varsity Matches, with 41 Oxford wins; and around 45 Women’s Varsity Matches, with 13 Oxford wins of the 24 we have records for.

The 2019 Varsity Match was held on the 16th of February, at the RAC Club on Pall Mall, which has a rich 100-year plus history of squash. Oxford Men’s team swept the Cambridge team completely, while our women didn’t have quite the same story. The 2020 Varsity Match will provisionally take place on Saturday 15th February, once again at the RAC. As per tradition, 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).
