Ibiza Cricket Club
Ibiza Cricket Club
When thinking about Ibiza, images of sun, sea and clubs come to mind, but cricket? Hardly but thanks to a small group of enthusiastic cricket lovers and british residents, friendly matches were played against touring sides from the uk (such as the Jack Hyams XI) in the early 1980s at the parched goat patch popularly called the “Es cana Oval”.
Eventually the regular group of players led by Desmond King and aided and abetted by Len Hamilton-Smith decided officially established Ibiza Cricket Club in the summer of 1986, appropriately sharing some beers at the well known Sandy’s Bar in Santa Eulalia.
Ibiza Cricket Club is delighted to play home games at the Carnes March facility in San Lorenzo, in the north of the island. Formerly the home of Ibiza Polo Club, this custom built facility is a fantastic place to play and watch cricket on the White Isle and a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the major towns.
Our ground has a purpose built batting mat, a decent size outfield & a fabulous space for players, spectators & fans including a large BBQ area, shaded zones and private parking. Ibiza Cricket Club hopes to provide a perfect destination for all standards of touring sides.
