ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The Concerned Parents/Teachers Sports Association Wings Sports Club will be hosting its first Open House, Appreciation and Talent Day, on Saturday, April 21, at Christ the King High School grounds.
The Club, which was founded in 1989 includes four main sporting disciplines: basketball, football, track & field and volleyball.
CPTSA has in the past held an annual awards ceremony, but this was discontinued more than five years ago, due mainly to financial constraints.
However, with support of a few new and vibrant members, it was decided that the award ceremony should be revisited but with a difference.
The function, which is spearheaded by Denise Hewlett, a past CPTSA member in the early years who had expatriated, will include an Open House, displaying Wings paraphernalia, events, posters, programmes and launching of its website. This will run from 2 to 6 pm.
The other committee members of the event are Maria Bradshaw of Wings Youth Track & Field Unit, Jose Otto of Wings Youth Volleyball Unit, Barbara Coates of Wings Youth Football and Tansy Pile-Wade of Wings Youth Basketball.
A number of sponsors that have been associated with the organisation over the years will also be displaying their products. Sponsors and some past members who have assisted the CPTSA in the past will also be honoured during the second segment of the day’s programme from 6 to 7 pm. The talent and modelling segment will be presented from 7 to 8:30 pm.
