Alfàs Cricket Club


14, Bulevard dels Musics, L'Albir, Comunidad Valenciana, 03581, Spain

The sun is the only passing similarity that The Woodbridge Oval in downtown Albir may have with the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. Likewise the Woodbridge rarely gets a mention when thinking of the world’s great cricket stadiums: Lord’s, Eden Gardens, The MCG. But, as far as surprises go, Albir takes the wicket! A cricket ground in the middle of a small Mediterranean coastal resort on Spain’s Costa Blanca – who would believe that?

Yet sure enough, this little corner of a foreign field is forever England. And club teams from around the world organise their schedules to get an opportunity to play here. For holidaymakers, if there’s a match on take a blanket and a parasol, make yourself comfy, G&T in one hand; now close your eyes and gently drift off listening to the sound of an English summer!
