The residents of Bagatelle, Diego Martin were able to enjoy a friendly cricket match between home team Merry Boys Cricket Club and Diamond United Cricket Club at the newly refurbished and upgraded Northern Regional Recreation Grounds. With great weather for cricket and the newly constructed outfield, installation of a new cricket turf pitch and drainage, a fun time was had by all. Residents of the area and various sporting clubs and enthusiasts now have access to the facility, which is the only major sporting field in Diego Martin.

Creating the foundation of an ideal cricket venue, the San Juan-based Monteco Creations Ltd. was the main contractor on this first phase of the upgrade project, with works completed, in just over a year, in site clearance, drainage, outfield construction and installation of the turf pitch for cricket. Phase I of the work at the Regional Recreation Ground began in November 2011. And this is one of more than 60 projects of the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago to upgrade and refurbish regional and community grounds across Trinidad.
