Cambridge University Cricket Club had previously played at two ground in Cambridge, the University Ground and Parker's Piece. In 1846, Francis Fenner leased a former cherry orchard from Gonville and Caius College for the purpose of constructing a cricket ground. In 1848 he sub-let the ground to Cambridge University Cricket Club. Fenner's first hosted first-class cricket in 1848, with Cambridge University playing against the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC).
Fenner's is also home to the Cambridge MCC University side, a partnership between the University of Cambridge, Anglia Ruskin University and the Marylebone Cricket Club established ahead of the 2010 season.
As well as the cricket ground, there is a 3-lane indoor cricket school.
The groundsman pioneered the art of mowing grass in strips to create patterns, a technique now common in sports stadiums around the world.
