Rwanda Cricket Stadium
Banda worked closely with the Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation (RCSF) in a project to build and manage, on a not-for-profit basis, Rwanda’s first international-standard cricket ground. Located on the outskirts of the capital, Kigali, the pavilion’s design uses an innovative thin-shell vaulting technology, which combines environmentally sensitive design with labour-intensive, locally sourced material production. This offers a sustainable building solution and helps to build a future for cricket in Rwanda.
RCSF was formed in August 2011 and is now run by a team of cricket enthusiasts from the UK and Rwanda, in partnership with the Marylebone Cricket Club Foundation. The stadium opened in October 2017 and continues to host local matches as well as events with cricketers from around the world. More information on the project can be found at: www.rcsf.org.uk/
