CRICKET (KENSINGTON OVAL)
Bridgetown

Since the late 19th century cricket has been the national sport of Barbados influenced by British customs. The “bajan” Sir Garfield Sobers, a national hero, who was considered as one of the greatest cricketers of his time, was knighted by Queen Elisabeth II in 1975. He is the only batsman to ever score six sixes in a single over!

 

Throughout the year, you might have the opportunity to attend a game at the Kensington Oval ground, a veritable institution in this former English colony, which has now been independent for over 42 years.

Barbados has the best rankings in the Red Stripe Tournament, the inter-island championships

 

Since November 2009, there has been a museum dedicated to this national sport: "The Cricket’s Legend of Barbados", teaching about the history of cricket in the Caribbean.
