UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
The Jack Cox Tournament is a Twenty 20 competition between the University of Oxford departments held every summer (May to August). Matches are played in the evenings at the University Club on Mansfield Road close to the centre of Oxford. There are two trophies to be won. The Jack Cox Cup and the Jack Cox Plate. The home page of the Jack Cox can be found here.
The tournament usually has 14-16 teams divided into groups and proceeds through a group stage before entering the final knockout stages. In 2012 there were 14 teams divided into 2 groups. The group winners and runners up went into the Jack Cox Cup semi-final and final. The 3rd and 4th placed teams went into the Jack Cox Plate semi-finals and final.
Bowlers are restricted to 3 overs each and batsmen must retire at 30 but can return at the end of the innings if the rest of their team are out. These restrictions ensure a high level of player participation and successful teams must have depth in their bowling and batting ability. Detailed rules can be found on the Jack Cox website. Matches are played on an artificial wicket (no spikes allowed).
The University Club serves food and drinks and has balcony that overlooks the cricket field for spectators to enjoy the cricketing action. The Medicine Cricket team have won the Jack Cox Cup 8 times since 2000 (up to and including 2015)
