Saint Lucia’s Venues & Facilities
Our island champions sport with a growing number of world-class venues and facilities that are purpose-built for a wide range of sports. Here are some of the best:
Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium
The Daren Sammy Cricket Ground, is located at the north-eastern end of the tourist resort of Rodney Bay, approximately 6 minutes drive from the town of Gros Islet on the scenic Castries-Gros Islet Highway.
The cricket ground is known for its high standard facilities and is regarded by the West Indies Cricket Board as a standard for current and future venues in the Caribbean. Its outfield, a perfect oval, is predictably lush green. It also became the first international ground in the Caribbean to receive floodlighting with the installation of 6 floodlight towers in 2006, enabling the hosting of day/night matches. In May 2006 it hosted the first ever international Day/Night ODI match in the Caribbean when the West Indies took on Zimbabwe. Due to the unfavourable time zone differences between the Caribbean and the large cricket markets in the far east international day/night matches have been few and far between.
The facility has 18 hospitality suites, a permanent seating capacity of 13,000 with bucket-type seating which can be increased to 20,000 for international matches. There are also two artificial pitches and two turfs for practice and warm-ups.
Beausejour Indoor Practice Facility
Next to the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground is the Beausejour Indoor Practice Facility. Initially built as an indoor practice venue for the Cricket World Cup 2007, the indoor practice facility has become the home to netball, volleyball and basketball. It is equipped with a state-of-the-art electronic scoreboard and timers. It has a seating capacity of 600.
Sandals Saint Lucia Golf & Country Clubs
The Saint Lucia Golf and Country Club’s 18-hole, par-71 course, spread over the rolling hills of the Cap Estate in the north of the island, offers one of the most scenic and challenging rounds in the Caribbean. There’s also a 9-hole course with taxingly narrow fairways at Sandals La Toc Golf Resort & Spa, with green fees and transportation to the course free for guests staying at one of the island’s three Sandals properties.
National Tennis Centre
The National Tennis Centre is located in Beausejour, right next to the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground and the Indoor Facility. The National Tennis Centre boasts six courts including a stadium court. There is proposed expansion to include three additional courts. The facility also has a number of dressing rooms, a cafeteria, treatment room and an administrative block.
The facility has hosted a number of prestigious tournaments including the Eastern Caribbean Tennis Tournament and the Coca Cola ITF Junior Tennis Tournament. With the completion of the additional courts the Tennis Association has its sights set on hosting other major events including the Davis Cup.
The Rodney Heights Aquatic Centre
Since 2000, the facility has served the entire OECS community with 25 Meter Lane swimming pool with a shallow learn to swim pool for toddlers and younger age children. The complex offers a studio with dance, aerobic, karate classes, aqua aerobics, learn to swim, and competitive swim programs.
Gros Piton Hiking Trail
The Pitons, St Lucia’s two volcanic mountains, are certainly some of the island’s best features, and a Gros Piton hike is an experience unlike any other. Gros Piton stands a remarkable 2,619 feet above sea level, and coupled with Petit Piton, it is the hallmark of St Lucia’s western coast. The hike itself can take between three to six hours in one direction, so starting in the cool morning hours is a must in order to ensure that you make it back to the bottom by nightfall. Bringing along a guide during a Gros Piton Hike is required, and you will find that St Lucia Real St Lucia Tour guides are locals who know the area very well and who can provide the ultimate tour experience.
Soufriere Mini Stadium
Located in the tourism enclave of Soufriere the stadium was refurbished in 2021 adding a 400-meter track field along with long jump and triple jump lanes with the accompanying sandpits and an AstroTurf Football field.
Diving in Saint Lucia offers a world class experience with the island ideally situated between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Undoubtedly a great option for the well-seasoned diver, families or groups, the adventurous spirit and of course the novice who aspires to experience the wonders of the underwater world. Boasting more than 22 awe-inspiring dive locations, the majestic isle of Saint Lucia harbors a wide range of stunning dive options.
