Getting to St George’s Cricket Club can be a feat in itself, so staying off the road and using the water to get to the East End
during the two-day cricket festival is worth considering. Once parking fills up at Mullet Bay Playground, which is the closest parking to the Cricket Club, there are a few options around St George’s including Penno’s Wharf (parking available on Thursday only) and Market Wharf. But it does mean about a 10-minute walk to the cricket grounds.
In addition to the bus, Sea Express will be running ferries to St George’s over the two-day holiday. The schedule wasn’t made available to the public before our print deadline, however, for more details on routes and running times over the long holiday weekend, call the main ferry terminal at 295-4506 or visit www.marineandports.bm.
Another option is to get together a group and rent a charter boat to get to the game. In this case, you can arrange to be dropped off at a dock near the cricket grounds. The UberVida is running a Cup Match Cruise leaving from Front Street at 10am on the second day of Cup Match (Friday, August 2), but tickets, $150 per person, almost always sell out. The price includes open bar, food and DJs as well as pick up and drop off at a dock near the game. To book, visit www.ubervida.net.
