The Committee hosted a delegation last Thursday comprising of key players in the very exciting renovation programme where they were also gifted with a number of sporting equipment for various sports such as basketball and tennis.

The Council shared its gratitude via Facebook, sending special thanks to not only the mentioned donors but to Caribbean Courts, the coaching staff and other staff in the sports department and the young boys and girls who are energetically providing assistance in the resurfacing process.
