History-making Row, and Golf & Cricket Games
HISTORY-MAKING ROW AND ACTION-PACKED GOLF & CRICKET GAMES ...

If you’re looking for the hottest sporting events on January’s calendar, gear up to welcome home our very own, history-making Team Antigua Island Girls rowers, and don't miss the first ever Sir Richie Richardson Charity Golf Day, and the thrilling 2nd Test Match between England and the West Indies in the next few days!

GET READY TO WELCOME TEAM ANTIGUA ISLAND GIRLS
We've been waiting with bated breath and keenly dot-watching since December 12th, keeping a close eye on the girls, and now the time to welcome them home is fast approaching. The ETA as of today is Tuesday, January 29th. Keep checking the race tracker as the ETA changes with each update. Stay tuned for the arrival time and get your flags ready to welcome our Island Girls home.

PLAY GOLF WITH CRICKET CELEBRITIES
Once you're done celebrating with the girls, participate or watch golf balls fly in the Charity Golf Day. Whether you’re an amateur or professional golfer, show off your swing and putting skills against cricketing legend Sir Richie Richardson and other cricket celebrities in the tournament on Wednesday, January 30th from 9am at Cedar Valley Golf Club. Register by Friday 25th to compete for bragging rights, a luxurious 2018 Honda HRV SUV and the coveted “Sir Richie Richardson Cup”. Proceeds go towards the Rotary Club of Antigua and St. John Hospice.

WATCH THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED TEST MATCH
On the heels of the golf tournament is the 2nd Test Match between England and the West Indies. Watch spectacular cricket as the two teams face-off in the action-packed five-day game starting on Thursday, January 31st from 10am at Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium. Windies fans, get your team attire and flags ready to rally round the West Indies. The mighty Barmy Army will be out in full force to support the English team. Make sure you have your tickets close to hand and head down to the stadium to outnumber them. If you haven't purchased your tickets as yet, buy online now before they're all gone!
