Road Tennis interim committee in place
Conrad Simon has been elected to head an interim committee which will lead the newly established St Vincent and the Grenadines Road Tennis Association.
Simon was placed in that helm when a meeting was convened last Thursday at the Arnos Vale Netball Complex, to institute the committee.
Elected as vice-president was Sharon Peters, with the treasurer being Winston Snagg. The five-member interim committee is completed by Annette Joseph, secretary and Sean Stanley, the public relations officer.
A release from that interim committee indicated that with the growing popularity of Road Tennis in St Vincent and the Grenadines, the need was evident for the establishment of a formal administrative structure.
Meanwhile, Simon told SEARCHLIGHT last Monday that next on the agenda of the committee is to meet with the various communities where the sport is played here, and go through with them the constitution.
This, he revealed, will pave the way in establishing a full-fledged St Vincent and the Grenadines Road Tennis Association.
Simon acknowledged that in the interim, relationships must be forged with the Ministries of Education and Sports, as well as the National Sports Council.
Overall, the interim committee plans to have close communication with the Road Tennis Association of Barbados and other countries.
Through the instrumentality of the Road Tennis Association of Barbados, there were tournaments staged during this country’s Nine Mornings celebrations in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
