Sunsail Moorings boosts inter island tennis


Another dimension in OECS unity will be forged among Junior Tennis players from St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada and St Lucia.{{more}}

Budding players from the two neighbouring islands are scheduled to descend on St Vincent and the Grenadines in December to be part of the General Services Limited Grassroot Tennis Club’s (GTC) Junior Tennis Tournament at the Haddon Hotel courts on Murray’s Road.

It will be the first time in the three-year history of the Christmas tournament that there will be an injection of regional players.

And, in a deviation of the norm, the visiting players will be transported here at a reduced cost, compliments Sunsail Moorings, which would transport the players by yacht.

Head of the GTC Grant Connell has welcomed the gesture made in St Vincent and the Grenadines by managing director of Sunsail Moorings Simon Carey.

Noting that the company is a household name in the three islands, Connell said the initiative by the GTC and Sunsail should prompt others to do the same.

Connell said that he hopes all the tennis clubs in St Vincent and the Grenadines would get on board so we can have more players exposed to regional tennis.

“…. I’m sure it’s not just limited to tennis players, but all sporting bodies and the general public……It was done in the past, so we can do it now,” Connell projected.

He said that with the arrangement in place, the Grassroot Tennis Club would be able to send at least 10 players to St Lucia next year for the Cape Maison junior tournament, which is scheduled for Easter.

“….This could be the answer to the problems we have experienced of travel among the islands, which appear so close geographically, but seemingly so far apart due to the cost of getting to them,” Connell concluded. (RT)
