In preparation for the hosting of the women’s preliminary round matches of the ICC WT20 WEST INDIES 2010 cricket tournament, the players’ facilities at Warner Park have been upgraded.
Cricket Operations officer-St Kitts, Mr. Steve Saunders explained, “Due to the fact that Warner Park would be staging two matches per day from May 5-10, two additional dressing rooms have been constructed to accommodate teams playing the second game of the day”.
He also stated that the improved facilities which are located in the Pam Tyson Netball Complex would be outfitted to meet the requirement of international standards. This development has the potential to guarantee the staging of more Twenty20 competitions at Warner Park which was improved by the Government of St Kitts and Nevis in order to host Cricket World Cup 2007.
The construction was undertaken by HYPE WORKS which is an upcoming small business owned by Butch Morris of Cayon. He expressed his gratitude for the ICC venue office in St. Kitts, in affording him the opportunity to expand his image as a small business owner and showcase his capabilities in the construction fraternity.
Mr. Morris revealed his satisfaction with the work that has been done so far in connection with the upgraded facilities, and looks forward to celebrating the success of the tournament when it bowls off in St. Kitts on May 5.
The women’s first round matches to be staged in St Kitts, include teams from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, West Indies, and world champs England. All tickets will be complimentary, giving the fans an opportunity to see the highest caliber of women’s cricket.
