CPL T20- The Biggest Party in Sport

The CPL (Caribbean Premier League) is a T20 tournament which is cricket mixed with the colorful carnival experience of the Caribbean.

Cricket is similar to baseball. Well, except for the fact that cricket has ‘ducks’ and ‘rabbits’ running all over the field, ‘flippers’ are flying everywhere, there are also ‘bowlers’ instead of pitchers and….well… actually, there are a lot that differentiates the two. However, it’s quite easy to understand the concept if it’s broken down by a cricket fan. (Trust me. I got the gist of it in under 3 minutes. Yes, I know. It’s very impressive.) Any who, even if you’re not a stickler for the sport, that shouldn’t stop you from attending this event. Other than seeing some of the best batsmen in Twenty20, there are a couple other reasons as to why you should be in Warner Park for this event.

Yes, my friends, after hosting some of the CPL T20 games last year, St. Kitts and Nevis can finally cheer on their own team at the Twenty20 games! WHOO!  Remember how pumped St. Kitts and Nevis was last year for the games? Imagine the energy the park will have now that we are actually a part of the tournament itself!!

And that leads me to talk about the next best reason as to why you should be present at the tournament: It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a partaaaaay! *dancing emoji* In all seriousness, it is THE BEST PARTY IN SPORT and it’s been given that name for a reason. I mean… let’s be reasonable. Do you honestly think that everyone in the crowd understands cricket? Pshhhh. Not even. (No offense cricket fans.) Everyone and anyone will be there just because the atmosphere is EXHILARATING to say the least. It’s literally Carnival at the park!

Hello June!

ATTENTION: TIME FOR A POP QUIZ. Can anyone tell me what the month of June represents? Bitter bedridden people with allergies may say it’s the month pollen still insists on staying around. Students may say June represents the month they can finally unplug their alarm clocks, while parents claim it to be the month where they reinstall tracking devices into their teenagers’ phone. Sounds like reasonable answers, right? *Buzzer* WRONG. If these are your answers then, sorry (not sorry) you’re highly mistaken. In our federation, June represents us. It is OUR MONTH! Yes, you heard us right! June belongs to St. Kitts and Nevis!  We have taken full custody and we’re not letting go any time soon.

St. Kitts and Nevis is widely known for our Music Festival in June. However, some of you may be surprised to hear that it’s also the month for CPL T20, Nationals, Endless partying (and we really do mean endless), nonstop excitement and so much more!

Alright, alright. Simmer down now. Exciting as it might be, June is so much more than a month of events to us.

June goes beyond the list of activities available. June is THE MONTH to experience St. Kitts and Nevis. It’s as simple as that! It’s the month when nationals return home and we’re all one big happy family again. I mean, really… It’s no wonder why college students are so anxious to come back home and bring their buddies from abroad with them, just so they could witness and feel what our beautiful twin islands have to offer for themselves. June represents our people and the energy we have. It represents love, laughter, joy, and excitement. That in itself is what makes our activities in June such a big hit. Our lively spirit is the real experience, all the events are just a plus!
