West Indies

Can you help Urlings Cricket Club in Antigua raise £2,500 to build a Club House and support grassroots cricket talent in the West Indies?

Urlings CC is a village cricket club in Antigua with a fantastic spirit, a wealth of raw natural youth talent and senior players and coaches with a strong national and international experience. What is missing are the facilities to bring it all together. A Cricket Club House will take Urlings CC to the next level, set new standards for cricket in Antigua and Barbuda and make all the difference. 

Sir Andy Roberts was the first cricketer from Antigua to play Test cricket, a legendary fast bowler who played world-class cricket for Hampshire County CC and Leicestershire County CC. Inviting support he said: “There’s great local cricket talent in Urlings and surrounding villages. A club house will provide the much needed facilities, pride and focus to bring this talent through to the club and national level in Antigua and Barbuda.” 

The Cricket Club House will include home and away changing rooms, toilets for teams and guests, a bar which will also generate consistent revenue for the club, a meeting room, trophy cabinet and storage space. It will also include an outside deck seating area that will blend into the shade of the giant Tamarind tree.

A total of 16,000 Eastern Caribbean Dollars (£4,000) is needed for the building materials, fixtures and fittings. The club has access to a large number of local builders who have pledged to volunteer their time, skills and equipment to build the Club House.  

You can make a contribution here.

Urlings Cricket Club would like to say thank you to all those making a donation to make the club house a reality and extend an invitation to to play with the team if you are visiting Antigua or if you would like to make a special trip. The cricket season in Antigua runs from January to July.
