Year 7 pupils are introduced to cricket during the second half of the Lent half term, with an intensive series of indoor nets in games periods and also on Saturday mornings. The U12A team will play 11 fixtures during the summer term against mainly independent schools from around the North West and compete annually in the Lancashire knock-out cup. The U12Bs usually play eight competitive matches in a season and are also entered in the Lancaster schools local cup competition, where they compete against A teams from local schools.

This pattern of matches is repeated across the Under 13, U14 and U15 age groups. The A teams regularly reach the Lancashire Cup Finals. 

We run four senior teams, with the First XI and Second XI  playing ever- stronger opponents across the North of England. The fixture list has expanded, with new games outside the North West Region against RGS Newcastle, Woodhouse Grove and Shrewsbury School. The season ends with a week of intense competition playing five other Royal Grammar Schools in the annual RGS Festival.
