The first of two University tournaments to be held this year was completed in Bangkok in February. Five universities: Assumption, Bangkok, Kasem Bundit, Mahidol and Siam played a 25-overs round-robin tournament at the Terdthai Cricket Ground. The universities all have cricket clubs representing them in the local league and it is hoped that the greater exposure this tournament will bring will encourage the universities to further support cricket activity.

Ethnic Thais exclusively make up the national U-16 side and it is hoped that they will gain admission to universities to further boost local participation numbers. The Cricket Association of Thailand hopes to extend the tournament to universities across the country and create a national league. This year Assumption met Siam in the Final, Assumption winning by nine wickets.
