The Barbados Cricket Association was established in 1933 by an Act of Parliament. The precursor to the Association was the Barbados Cricket Challenge Cup Committee which, when formed in 1892, created the first set of rules governing cricket in Barbados. The BCA is the principal steward of cricket on the island and as a member of Cricket West Indies, the Association is the CWI local agent.
There is no other national sports association in Barbados whose existence and operations are so closely intertwined with the culture and identity of the country, and the Association's slogan Cricket at the Core of national development reflects this reality. A highly respected institution throughout the region, the Association has benefited from excellent public and private sector support over the years, with the ultimate legacy being the consistent preparation of players to represent the West Indies. Of equivalent import, an enduring reality of the BCA's excellent stewardship is the symbiotic national and regional existence borne out of Cricket World Cup 2007
