Three of Barbados' legendary cricketers have had their status elevated at Kensington oval.

The 3W's - Sir Frank Worrell, Sir, Everton Weekes, and Sir Clyde Walcott had the double decker stand at the old Kensington named after them. Now the renovated Challenor stand - the second tallest building in Barbados - will be known as the Worrell, Weekes and Walcott stand.



The third and fourth floors of that building however will be called the Challenor suites.



It's is part of a renaming exercise between the Barbados cabinet, the Barbados Cricket Association, the Barbados Tourism Investment Inc. and Ministry of Education, Youth Affairs and Sports.



In other changes, the Hall and Griffith stand will retain its name, but the seven suites being constructed at that location will now be known as the Emmanuel Martindale suites.



The former Mitchie Hewitt stand will now be called the Hewitt and Inniss stand, while its seven suites will be named after Sir Conrad Hunte.



The Kensington Inniss stand has been renamed the Greenidge and Haynes stand, with the 16 suites at the top taking the names of Dennis Atkinson and Seymour Nurse.



The Peter Short Media Centre will now be the Coppin, Cozier and Short Media Centre, adding sports journalists Oscar Coppin and Tony Cozier.
