Like in many commonwealth countries, cricket is a very popular sport. The 2007 Cricket World Cup was hosted in the West Indies from 11 March to 28 April 2007. Antigua hosted eight matches at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. Antigua is also a Host of twenty20 Cricket, a game created by Allen Stanford in 2006 as a regional cricket game with almost all Caribbean islands taking part.

Association football is also a very popular sport. Antigua has a national football team albeit inexperienced.

Athletics is also popular. Talented athletes are trained from a young age and Antigua and Barbuda have produced a few fairly adept athletes. Janill Williams, a young athlete with much promise comes from Gray's Farm, Antigua. Also, Sonia Williams and Heather Samuel have represented Antigua and Barbuda at the Olympic Games.

I think Rugby is the most popular game in these islands. Cricket is also very famous.

Has Antigua and Barbuda's national Rugby team ever been to a World Championship edition at least once?

I think volley ball is the best game to play on beach and its provide some extra fun and joy to all . Rugby are also not a bad idea but i prefer volley ball because its my favorite game also and i like it more to play with my friends on beach on a sunny day.
