Costs for Players

CUHC recognises that playing university sport can be expensive. So we got out our abacus and worked out the typical costs for a CUHC member each season:

Description Frequency Cost Notes
Subscriptions Michaelmas & Lent terms £115 per term (2019-2020) No match fees
Playing Kit On joining CUHC £50 Home & Away Shirt; Shorts and Socks
Personal Stash On offer throughout season £100-150 Completely optional (Trackies etc.)
Varsity Stash Once a year in the run-up to Varsity £50-100 Paid throughout the year via fines*
Socials Various throughout the year £70-100 Optional but good fun (Christmas Dinner etc.)
Blues tour Pre-season tour for Blues teams TBC

Costs vary from player to player, so these are just a rough guideline. If you are concerned about the cost of playing, then we would recommend inquiring about the funding available at your college. Most colleges have a grant system in place to help students cover some of the cost of playing sport. CUHC also endeavours to cater to everyone, so please speak to your captain or a senior committee member.

*fines are fun, light-hearted & fair. They are paid throughout the year and are averaged over each team to cover the cost of social activities and varsity stash. Unique to the Men’s side of the club.
