Wanderers Cricket Club
Wanderers is the oldest existing cricket club in Barbados. The club was founded in 1877 with its initial membership drawn from the social elite of the colony, and exclusively white. The club had a strong rivalry with Pickwick Cricket Club, another white club, but one which drew its membership from a slightly lower social class. Changes in Barbadian society meant that from the 1960s onwards, the membership of Wanderers gradually came to reflect the general Barbadian population.
The club originally played at the Bay Land until moving to Dayrells Road in 1952.
