CADO sports competitions to have full plate in 2017


The Calliaqua Area Development Organization (CADO) plans to have a full slate of sporting competitions for 2017.

Revelations of the organization’s intent were made by chair of CADO Foster Hannibald.

Speaking to SEARCHLIGHT, Hannibald revealed that part of the revival of sporting activities will be the football, netball and basketball tournaments.

“We have not had these tournaments for some time and now is the right time to have them again,” he indicated.

Hannibald underscored the need to have those three disciplines back on the sporting agenda, as the upgrades of the Calliaqua Playing Field and the adjoining hardcourt will enhance the competitions.

“…We especially want to usher back in the netball and basketball competitions on our redone hard court… As you are aware, there is a lull in basketball competitions in St Vincent and the Grenadines, except in the case of the annual Bequia tournament and we thought it was fitting to re-introduce basketball especially at this time,” Hannibald explained.

Hannibald also revealed that the recently concluded softball cricket competition will be revamped, with a three-month duration placed on its completion.

An optimistic Hannibald foresees an improved 2017 softball competition.

He thanked the individuals and business entities who have been there with CADO over the years, including Franklyn Browne Valuation Services, which Hannibald mentioned has been a major contributor to the organization’s sporting competitions.
