Situated just east of the main Windward Island chain, but very much the beating heart of the West Indies cricket scene, Barbados is an absolute must of a destination for any touring club or school team.
We’ve been organising cricket tours to Barbados for players and fans for over ten years and have built great relationships with our partners on the island, so you can relax in the knowledge that our tours are seamless, stress-free and packed with excursions to the must-see and the little known.
With a cricket club for nearly every square mile of land, it’s no surprise that this tiny island has produced an extraordinary number of world-class cricketers, and it’s this incredible heritage that makes the club and school tours to Barbados so popular.
Walking out into some of the most hallowed grounds in cricket’s history is an experience that’s hard to beat, and facing the infamous, blisteringly-paced bowlers, that seem to grow on trees here, is a sure-fire way to sharpen the skills of players, young or old.
Cricket matches happen all the time in Barbados, so there’ll always be an opportunity between your own games to catch some action elsewhere – a Test Match or One Day International at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown perhaps, a quality local league match, or even a friendly few wickets on the beach.
Great accommodation options, for all levels, mean everyone can experience laid-back, beach-life Bajan style – check out our suggested itineraries below, or give one of our West Indies’ experts a call on 020 3844 8444 to talk about your requirements.
