As you have probably guessed by now, the British Virgin Islands are owned by the United Kingdom. In fact, the citizens of this archipelago are considered to be British citizens and are also citizens of the European Union (for now) due to the fact that they hold British citizenship.
Cricket is Popular Here Thanks to the British
Wherever the British have been, be it India, Australia, New Zealand, or Sri Lanka, they have left behind a love of cricket, and the British Virgin Islands are no exception to this rule.
There are many cricket fans on the islands, although most support the West Indies instead of England. There is one cricket stadium, which is known as the A. O. Shirley Recreation Ground. Nowadays, it is mostly used for football matches, but it hosted a number of cricket matches in the past, with the last recorded cricket match being played there back in 2005.
When you are walking along the sandy beaches of the British Virgin Islands, you will often see children having the time of their life playing beach cricket. You will often hear them shouting out the names of their West Indie cricketing heroes such as Chris Gayle and Darren Bravo.
Don’t get too close though as they might keep pestering you until you join in.
We Like to Reward Cricket Players at Our Restaurant
Most of us at Leverick Bay Restaurant are huge cricket fans ourselves, so we decided to create a special menu for cricket players. This menu has a number of special offers that any cricket player can take full advantage of. You will be eligible for discounts on a wide range of food and drink items.
In order to be able to make use of our cricketer discounts, all you have to do is prove that you belong to a cricket club. We do not care what cricket club you or part of or where you are from, we are only interested in the fact that you are a cricket fan and that you play the game yourself. You can prove this to us by just showing us your membership card for the cricket club that you play for.
We really enjoy meeting cricketers from all over the world, so please be warned that we might stop to speak to you. If we speak too much, please forgive us, but we are just extremely interested in finding out more about people from all walks of life.
