Speaking to the media, one of the organisers Marlan Cole said they are still dumbfounded as to the level of play they witnessed from the under-11 players.

“When we initially started the tournament the thinking was that these school teams they are not existing clubs nor traditional clubs and therefore the schools fielding at team at this level might be challenging but we were surprised with the response we got from the school. Each and every one of the invited schools invited were here today (yesterday) and participated in high and good spirit and so that in itself is pleasing and satisfying and therefore we know for sure at Petra that this competition can only get better.”

Courts Managing Director Molly Hassan in an invited comment, said she was pleased with the support the tournament has received from parents especially those who were there cheering on their children as they played. That she said is what the tournament is about bring families together and while the children are involved in good clean fun.
