“T20's in Barbados”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Great fun with the locals despite losing the series 2 1. 12 of us in the WWW stand. Fantastic banter with the locals esp Bajan Bob & his crew, beer cold & reseanobly priced but give the food a swerve. .

“great atmosphere for the T20!”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

We were in the Greenidge Haynes stand in section 219 on one day and 220 the next for the last 2 matches of the T20 series. The seats were in the shade and in 220 plenty of space to sit comfortably. The final match was the most exciting as it came down to the last ball. The atmosphere was electric. The ground is compact and you get a great view.
As it was a bit of a trek up and down stairs it was great that vendors came round selling cold Banks beer and the famous Bajan fishcakes. Neither costing more than 5 B.dollars .

“Great stadium but be careful where you sit”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

This is a lovely ground with good facilities and it's fun, like all of Barbados. It would have been nicer if England could have won the match we saw - but hey ho!
Make sure you know where you're going to sit and don't get misled into buying the wrong tickets. Tickets are not expensive but some seats are totally exposed to the sun and that's bad news unless you can really handle the Caribbean sun in big doses.

“Cricket isnt so bad”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

It had lots of booths and fairly priced food and drink! But if you're heading up to the top stands buy it before you go up theres a lot of stairs!

“England T20 V West Indies”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Not the best ground in the world.. nothing compares to Lords.. but its the best the West Indies have.. seats were fine.. Food was hit and miss, something's always cold.. but prices very reasonable.. enjoyed the three 20/20 games.. a win would have been better..
