Cambridge University Australian Rules Football Club



The Cambridge University Australian Rules Football Club (CUARFC) is the home of men’s and women’s Australian rules football in Cambridge.

We pride ourselves on welcoming all players and seek to foster a strong and inclusive community through regular trainings, social events and matches. 


We welcome both Cambridge University students and Cambridge residents of all skill levels.  Many of our players join the club never having played Aussie Rules.

We have a Women's+Non-binary and Men's+Non-binary team in the National University League, where the Men's+Non-bin team is the current reigning premiers. The highlight of our season is the  annual Varsity Match against Oxford, which itself is over 100 years old!

The connection between Cambridge University and Australian rules football dates back even further to the 1850s when Tom Wills, one of the inventors of the sport, was a student at the University. After experiencing the forms of football and rugby here, he returned to Australia where he developed Australian Rules with the aim of keeping fit during the cricket off season!If it was not for these early experiences at the University of Cambridge then the sport might never have come into existence. 

All club communication for trainings and games is through our WhatsApp group. 

Make sure to also up to our mailing list, and follow us on social media, to stay up to date with current events.

Can't wait to see you out there!

Henry Marshall  (Club President)
