Each year, two major tournaments take place at the cricket club. The Easter Festival hosts teams from the UK, The USA (yes, the Yanks actually do play cricket) Hong Kong, and other countries. The other tournament takes place at the mini festival during Thanksgiving weekend.  

Even though the club is a “members only” establishment, visitors and teams are welcome to train, play a round, or watch. Visitors can even use the equipment free of charge. Full practice nets are available and training is held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. The clubhouse is located on the grounds and has a full service bar, miniature gym and changing rooms. 

The Lucaya Cricket Club is located on Baloa Road, five minutes walking distance from the Lucaya Golf and Country Club. For more information, contact the Cricket Club at 242-373-1460.
