The history of CUTwC

The Cambridge University Tiddlywinks Club was founded in 1955 by undergraduates who wanted to represent the University at a sport, and found that the existing options did not appeal to them. The Club has been continuously active ever since, playing and usually defeating Oxford University Tiddlywinks Society whenever it has been available. The Club has started the winking career of numerous World Champions, and many winkers who now have decades of experience had their first exposure to the game at CUTwC.

More information on the founding of CUTwC and the subsequent expansion of winks throughout the English-speaking world can be read on the ETwA (English Tiddlywinks Association) website.
