Club History

The Canberra University College was formed in 1930 from the University Association of Canberra but it was not until 1946 that the Australian National University Act was passed by Federal Government to create the ANU. The first academic staff didn’t arrive until 1950 and then  it wasn’t until 1960 that ANU amalgamated with the Canberra University College, with the CUC became the school of general studies with undergraduate students.

In 1946, a club called “University” entered a team in A grade, coming a creditable 4th out of 8 teams.  In 1947 they again entered the competition but only came 7th. The following year they came 3rd and in 1949 they came 4th.

University did not then appear until 1958 when they entered a team in the B grade competition. They remained in the competition as University sometimes with 1, then 2, then 3 teams changing the name to ANU in 1968 which is the name they have kept until present day.  The club has had varying success over the years, expanding and contracting, winning and losing, changing uniforms and even spawning offshoots to overcome grading issues. It is the oldest club in the senior completion.
