Tennis tables presented to hinterland REOs

Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr Frank Anthony handed over a number of tennis tables to the REOs of various hinterland communities as it advances its sport development programme in schools.

According to a Govern-ment Information Agency (GINA) report, each region received one table, which the REOs were urged to place in school dormitories.

“We want boards going into the schools, and then we want the schools taking part in our table tennis championship,” Anthony said. The championship has been held for several years in Georgetown, but it has been observed that schools in the other regions do not participate.  The minister also told the REOs that a coach can be deployed to their communities to provide training. He noted too that during the year, the ministry will be establishing a programme for persons to be trained as level one coach. To further advance sport development countrywide, the ministry has upgraded a number of sport arenas, distributed sport gear and organised sport clubs across the ten regions.

Tennis tables will soon be distributed on the coastland.
