Located on the outskirts of Bridgetown
, this cricket arena recently hosted the World Cup in 2007. Barbados is one of the international centres for cricket and plays host to regular test matches between the months of January and April, with teams drawn from the West Indies, England, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan and South Africa.
Go where the cricket legends play! Kensington Oval is Barbados’ oldest cricket ground, having been established in 1882 when Pickwick Cricket Club leased 4 acres of pasture land from Kensington Plantation and started to develop it as a cricket ground with a clubhouse. A statue of His Excellency, The Right Honorable Sir Garfield Sobers, National Hero of Barbados, universally recognized as the world’s greatest cricketer and in whose honour the Players Pavilion is named, dominates the entry to the Oval.
