The National Junior Tennis Championships has once again benefited from an injection of nearly EC$8,000. RBTT Manager Desmond Austin presented a cheque worth EC$7,900 on the 3rd of July to The S.V.G Tennis Association’s president Grant Connell, vice-president Tony Boyea and treasurer Sylvina Roberts.{{more}}

This is the 11th year that the bank is sponsoring the event. Tournament director Tony Boyea said that he is very pleased with the bank’s generosity over the years. The money will go towards equipment, administration, clothing and trophies. Because of the bank’s support, past entrants have been able to acquire tennis scholarships. These include: Justin John, and more recently, Lerissa Morris.

Three awards will be given out at the tournament’s end: the Most Improved Female, the Most Improved Male and the Challenge Trophy, which goes to the tournament’s MVP (Most Valuable Player). Interested persons are asked to note that registration will end on July 12.

The RBTT National Junior Tennis Tournament is scheduled to take place from July 13 to July 20.
