The beautiful Caribbean island of St. Kitts has an impressive line-up of sporting events in 2019, to help you get your sporting fix
St. Kitts’ national sport is cricket, and the biggest cricket event on the island in 2019 is easily the England versus West Indies T20I matches, to be held on 8th and 10th of March at Warner Park in Basseterre. The matches will be the two most prestigious sporting events that the island of St. Kitts has seen in a number of years.
Minister of Tourism of St. Kitts & Nevis, Hon. Lindsay Grant, said: “Kittitians love cricket just as much as Brits – and we are really looking forward to welcoming British cricket fans to St. Kitts for the distinguished T20I England versus West Indies matches. The whole island gets involved, creating a unique and lively atmosphere among both locals and tourists.”
International Cricket Tours is offering a fantastic package deal for those wanting to head along to both matches, from £2,599 per person based on two sharing. This includes international return flights, 11 nights’ accommodation at Sugar Bay Club in the lively Frigate Bay area by the beach, transfers, T20I match tickets for both games, and more.* To book, call 020 36671639 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a few rounds of golf is more your preference, the 9th Annual St. Kitts & Nevis Admirals Cup Golf Tournament tees off from 2nd to 7th February 2019 – the AM-AM (amateur duo) division will see teams play a 54-hole net best ball event, while the PRO-AM (one pro, one amateur duo) division will see teams play against other teams in an overall competition. Both AM-AM and PRO-AM competitors will play for the Admirals Cup, plus a selection of other prizes including golf equipment, luxury gifts, and return holidays to St. Kitts and Nevis.
Full stay and play packages provided by A Golfing Experience, which includes tournament AM-AM player entry, player gift bags, BA flights, accommodation, transfers and more, start from just £2,275 per person for seven nights during the Admirals Cup.**
The annual Nevis to St. Kitts Cross Channel Swim has become one of the must-do open water events in the Caribbean, and is popular with locals and visitors alike at both a competitive and non-competitive level. Taking place on 31st March 2019, hundreds will take on the 4km swim from Oualie Beach on Nevis across the “Narrows” to Cockleshell Beach on St. Kitts.

For adventure seekers, St. Kitts offers many outdoor sporting and adventure activities to try – including zip-lining, hiking, snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding, diving, and water sports.
St. Kitts Tourism Authority CEO Racquel Brown said: “St. Kitts offers a vast range of exciting sporting and adventure activities for visitors, and there really is something for everyone here. What’s more, after a busy day of physical activity, you can relax and ‘Go Limin’ at many of our fantastic restaurants and bars, as you watch the sunset over the Caribbean Sea. There is nothing quite like it!”
