Hot tropical temperatures and hard sun-baked grounds may not sound like the ideal combination for a rugby tour, but when you add terrific hospitality, a wonderful camaraderie and gallons of Bank’s beer, then it sounds almost perfect.
Rugby prospers on our little island where the passion and the enthusiasm is just as strong as anywhere in the rugby world. The standard may not be as high, but then all the best rugby is played in the clubhouse, and that’s where our boys are world-class.
Rugby tours are very welcome to Barbados and visiting teams down the years have included schools, universities, Caribbean national teams, clubs and the Canadian national team. International players like Gareth Edwards, Jeremy Guscoff, Mike Catt and Victor Ubogu have played in Barbados, and lived to tell the tale!
Barbados rugby is centred on the historic Garrison area inside the local racetrack. The Garrison has been the scene of multiple sports for over 150 years, but rugby only appeared in 1964 when the local club was formed.
