BCA NEWS RELEASE # 13/22

RESUMPTION OF DOMESTIC CRICKET SEASON IN BARBADOS

Following a series of recently held meetings, the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) is pleased to announce the resumption of the Domestic Cricket Season on Saturday April 23, 2022. All participating teams (clubs and schools) will be afforded the opportunity to compete in both Limited Overs and League format cricket at different venues across the island.  

Unfortunately, the Barbados Defence Force Sports Program (BDFSP) who previously competed in the Elite Division has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming season. 

Consequently, the BCA’s Board of Directors met and made the following decisions:

BDFSP’s place in the Elite Division will be taken by the Catherine Cricket Club.

Additionally, Catherine Cricket Club’s place in the First Division will be filled by The Combermere School.
