Cricket at new Sports Club

Oceânico’s new Amendoeira Golf Resort sports club hosted its first cricket match on August 9.

A friendly between Carvoeiro and Barringtons from Vale do Lobo on the club’s natural grass pitch ended in a 16-run win for Barringtons, who posted a score of 106 all out and then dismissed Carvoeiro for 90.

The match was played on the football pitch, with the ground protected by an artificial bowling wicket to ensure players had a good base to compete on.

The Sports Club is already the base for many sporting events, including bowls, Gaelic football, golf, tennis, rugby, volleyball and football, and forms part of the Amendoeira Golf Resort that offers golf courses designed by Nick Faldo and Christy O’Connor Jnr.

Oceânico is looking into providing a purpose-built cricket ground at the resort and would like to hear from any other Algarve cricketers or clubs that would be interested in using it.
