‘Tis the season to be jolly if you’re a student from Alexandra School.

Alexandra's young cricketers crowned a magnificent season when they won the Barbados Cricket Association’s (BCA) Intermediate title.

Not a ball was bowled, leaving the students with the cup – and they deserved it. Having outplayed their opponents MTW, they led by 282 in the second innings going into the final day. < Read more >

Floyd Reifer signalling the end of the Jamaica innings after he caught Darren Powell off Corey CollymoreThe 2004 Carib Beer International Challenge Trophy, won by Barbados to complete a phenomenal “double double”, is the most significant among the long list of successes captain Courtney Browne has enjoyed in his long stint in national colours.

It was achieved at 11:18 a.m. when Barbados defeated Jamaica by the comfortable margin of 84 runs before appreciative hometown supporters, 24 hours after the hosts appeared to be in a hopeless position.

It was Barbados’ fifth title under Browne’s inspirational leadership in the past two-and-a-half years and it was the tenth he has been part of since his debut for the country in 1991. < Read more >

Greenidge Barbados cricket heroIn over two centuries cricket has not simply become the national sport of Barbados but almost a way of life! Bajans love their cricket, they are born into it and that inherent passion never leaves them. Cricket has not only been instrumental in bringing about major social changes within the island but within the Caribbean as a whole.

Introduced to Barbados by the British military. Cricket was taught in the local schools as a character building exercise! Local clubs were set up and lots of these clubs are still active and very competitive.

Cricket clubs have grown up over the years Pickwick and Wanderers being just two.

Pickwick Cricket Club's 124th annual general meeting this year is likely be its last at Kensington Oval, as it prepares to vacate one of international cricket’s most famous venues that has been its home since its formation in 1882.

Tony Cozier, the voice of West Indies cricket, was showered with praise on Friday night as the Wanderers Club paid homage to one of its favourite sons with a gala dinner.

Compliments of the Nation News, Leeds in July 1980.

A day of International Test Cricket at the Oval, in St. Michael, a weekend village match on a sheep grazed pasture, Kensington Oval

or a evening game of beach cricket.
ALL are taken very seriously!

All the additional trappings and social rituals associated with the game have developed over the years and have resulted in some fascinating local heroes such as 'Flannagan' and 'King Dyal'. Ask any local and they will entertain you with stories of their antics and pranks!
