Three Ws Oval, Barbados: This cricket ground has undergone extensive refurbishments in the last few years and now meets the current ICC standards. It can hold up to 2,000 people and is commonly used for warm-up matches. As well as being used for games, the grounds also contain the West Indies Cricket Walk of Fame, which leads up to the gravesites of cricket legends Sir Frank Worrell and Sir Clyde Walcott.
Kensington Oval, Barbados: The Kensington Oval is located on the western edge of Barbados’ capital city, Bridgetown. It holds 28,000 people and has been the host of many sporting events, both cricket and non-cricket related, over its 120 year long history. As well as the cricket area, the ground also has a Jacuzzi area with a giant flat screen TV for fans to relax in. A grassy hill behind this serves as the ideal place to have a lovely picnic in the Barbadian sun.
Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua: Sir Vivian Richards Stadium is in North Sound, Antigua, just a 20 minute drive from the country’s main airport. It holds just 10,000 people but temporary seating can be used to almost double its capacity. This stadium is quite new in comparison to others as it was only built in 2007.
Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, St Lucia: The cricket stadium was renamed in 2016 after the triumphant victory of the West Indies team in the T20 World Cup, captained by Darren Sammy. It has a capacity of 15,000 people and is known for its high specification grounds. Fun fact: It is also hosted the Caribbean’s very first day/night match in 2006 against Zimbabwe.
National Cricket Stadium, Grenada: The National Cricket Stadium in Grenada holds around 20,000 people and is commonly used for test matches. It was reconstructed in anticipation for the 2007 international cricket tournaments and has remained a popular ground for international games ever since. It also hosts games for other sports, such as football, running, and various other athletics.
Warner Park, St Kitts: As the smallest stadium on the list, Warner Park holds a modest 4,000 people. However, with temporary seating, this can be increased to almost 10,000. The stadium is split into 2 segments with one half containing the cricket stadium and the other, the football stadium. The complex can also accommodate for other sports such as tennis, netball and volleyball.
