Participate Or Spectate. Barbados Is For Sports Enthusiasts.

Barbados Sports

Our island offers all the sports you know and love, along with a climate that favours year-round outdoor action. Whether you decide to participate or spectate, Barbados sports will extend and enrich your Caribbean holiday experience.

Throughout the year, there's a busy calendar of world-class sporting events across our island. Cricket is our passion and you'll find it played by amateurs on the pastures and beaches of Barbados and by international celebrities on the manicured grounds of the Barbados Cricket Association's Kensington Oval. We can also claim a sport that's all our own - road tennis in Barbados is growing in popularity here and overseas. Sports holiday enthusiasts flock to our island to play golf - Barbados is home to several courses designed by world-leading architects. Visitors also come on sports vacations to ride our waves - the Bathsheba Soup Bowl is an international surfing destination. Experience horse racing in Barbados at the historic Garrison Savannah, and join the jet set for an afternoon at exclusive polo clubs around the island. Motorsport enthusiasts head over to Bushy Park Racing Circuit, and sailors raise full canvas to compete in our annual round-the-island race. Choose Barbados for the most popular and action-packed sports in the Caribbean.
