0730 Cup Match

All of you locals will be VERY familiar with what Cup Match is all about but some newbies or tourists out there might be wondering why there is all this fuss over a game of cricket.

The Thursday is officially Emancipation Day and the Friday is Somer’s Day. On the surface, Cup Match is a cricket game played on a two-day public holiday on the Thursday and Friday before the first Monday in August. This means that for 2015, it is on Thursday, July 30th and Friday, Friday 31st. It is much more than just a cricket game though and, when combined with the weekend, becomes a four-day celebration of all things Bermudian.

Cup Match pits the East of the Island, St. George’s, against the West, Somerset, and alternates venues every year. 2015 will be played at Wellington Oval in St. George’s and next year will be at the Somerset Cricket Club. You will be able to spot St. George’s fans by their light blue and dark blue attire while Somerset will be in red and blue.

Even those who aren’t fans of cricket attend the game from 10am until 6pm each day to experience this uniquely Bermudian experience, soak in the carnival atmosphere, local food and drinks, see the outrageous fashions and to try their luck at gambling on the Crown & Anchor tables (only legal during Cup Match).

Tickets are available on the gate and are $20 for adults, $5 for seniors and children under 12.

For more information, contact St. George’s Cricket Club on 297-0374, or stgeorgescc@ibl.bm.

​Visiting the Island over Cup Match? Bermuda Tourism and the Bermuda Hotel Association host a Cup Match Visitors’ Stall where tourists can sit back, relax and enjoy the game with complimentary refreshments.

 

0905 Bermuda Sand Sculpture Compeittion

Unleash your creativity with Bermuda’s natural resources at the 20th Annual Bermuda Sand Sculpture Competition on Saturday, September 5th.

This will be at the usual location of beautiful Horseshoe Bay. Sculpting begins at 10am and finishes at 4pm, followed by judging and an awards presentation. Available categories, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes, are Children, Teenagers, Families, and Adults/Open/Company/Organiser/Tourist.
