Golden Oldies World Cricket Festival, Barbados, May 2017

A Special Invite to Your Club from…

Sir Garfield Sobers.

Barbados BeachI am delighted to extend my invite to Golden Oldies Cricket Teams from around the world, to experience, my home, the remarkable island of Barbados and to enjoy with us the wonderful game of cricket. Growing up in Barbados I was lucky enough to advance my cricket career in such beautiful surroundings. Barbados is an extremely special place for me and as you will find, the love and warmth of the people will ensure that you are always looked after.

I learned my cricket playing extensively in and for Barbados and the West Indies and it is with great pleasure that I invite Golden Oldies Cricket players, their friends and supporters to join us on the spectacular island of Barbados. Hope you will come and see where I grew up and developed my love of our great game.

I look forward to seeing old friends and to making new ones in our little part of paradise.

The Right Excellent Sir Garfield Sobers
National Hero of Barbados

Batts Rock_2It is exciting that Barbados will be hosting the 17th Golden Oldies Work Cricket Festival in 2017. Having grown up on the island of Barbados, I am thrilled to be able to showcase our home grounds to fellow cricket enthusiasts from around the cricketing world.

Barbados is a cricket lover’s dream! Our people have a passion for everything cricket. This is apparent as you explore the island and engage with the local cricket buffs (and they are all experts). With over 70 venues (and I have played on quite a few) to choose from, Golden Oldies have selected some of the finest.

Barbados is one of the world’s cricket capitals and is also one of the really beautiful Caribbean destinations. It is certainly exciting times ahead for us, not only to showcase our stunning island and diverse culture to you, but to introduce to you some of the finest Barbados rum!

Having played in a Golden Oldies Cricket Festival I well know the fun to be had on and off the field and I look forward to welcoming you to Barbados in 2017.
