Our story and goals:
Established in the 1920s, the Cambridge University Eton Fives Club (CUEFC) has always been home to a passionate group of players, several of whom have gone on to become Kinnaird champions.
We also take great pride in our new beginner players and are privileged to support them along their fives journey. We provide inspiring coaching from more experienced players, access to tournaments, as well as a friendly and encouraging fives community to call home. We have seen growing numbers in recent years, and we are particularly proud of the growth and development of our Ladies’ side, where over 50% of the squad only started playing Fives at University.
The Club competes annually against Oxford in the Varsity match at Eton College, the University of London in the London Varsity, and is well represented at many national tournaments throughout the season.
We are determined to continue our mission of introducing this beautiful game to new players no matter their background, as well as further extending the rigour and excellence of our play.
To do this, we need your help!
The Club is looking for support to assist with student subscription fees, subsidising tournament travel costs, as well as our ambition of acquiring a coach.
As it stands, subscription fees start at £45 for players, increasing quickly with costs of equipment, travel to tournaments as well as the Varsity itself. The club also incurs operating costs through hiring courts at the University Sports Centre, as well as maintaining the historic court at Magdalene College.
We believe the lowering of subscription fees will help tackle the challenges of accessibility, and will lead to increased student participation.
Subsidising the travel costs to tournaments will not only benefit our players with more competitive play, but will also enable players to actively engage with the wider fives community.
Ultimately, we seek to spark and nurture a lifelong love of fives. Your donations, big or small, will make all the difference in helping us achieve this.
