In May 2017 the 17th Golden Oldies World Cricket festival comes to our shores, with over 100 teams visiting to enjoy friendly competition, sunny weather, excellent beaches, nightlife and adventure!
The island has a long and proud cricketing history. Barbados is home to the historic Kensington Oval, the first West Indian ground to host an English touring team (way back in 1895). And of course Barbados has produced some of the finest cricketers including Sir Garfield Sobers, the 3Ws, Desmond Haynes and Wes Hall.
Kensington Oval hosted the final of the 2007 World Cup and the 2010 World T20 final.
Golden Oldies Cricket is built around the spirit of “Fun, Friendship and Fraternity” however that does not mean that your team cannot play to the best of its ability or to its strengths. The sides you are drawn against will reflect the level of play which you have told us you prefer – ranging from competitive to social and anywhere in between. The difference is there is no overall winner and age is no barrier, other than the fact that you must be 35 years of age or over to participate.
