Sol Barbados Continue To Fuel Bajan Youth’s Exposure To World Class Tennis
SOL in Barbados is continuing to make its presence felt in the community and particularly the youth of Barbados with its latest charitable exercise.
Last week, Sol made a donation to the Barbados Tennis Association in an effort to facilitate the attendance of students from the Trinity Primary School at the recently concluded Davis Cup tennis action held here on the island.
Through Sol’s generous donation the group of youngsters were given the treat of witnessing Barbados take on Paraguay in a thrilling battle in which the home team came out victorious. The donation will also go towards financing transportation for the students to the Tennis Centre as part of their ongoing coaching programme.
Gina Cummins, Group Marketing & Communications Coordinator with Sol (Caribbean) Limited, said this donation follows that made last year when they purchased 100 tickets for local junior tennis players which were distributed through the Tennis Association of part of the latter’s Schools Initiative Programme, which works with tennis programmes at schools across the island to raise interest in the sport:
“Since its inception in 2005, Sol has made a concerted effort to play an active role in the development of youth in the territories within which it operates. Over the last few years we have become heavily involved with the Barbadian community, particularly at the junior school level as evidenced with the partnerships we have forged with institutions such as the St. Mary’s Primary, Westbury Primary and the Wesley Hall Junior School. We believe that part of furthering the youth’s development is facilitating their exposure to the highest standards, whether it be in sports, environment, education, etc., and as such we remain committed to working the Barbados Tennis Association in their attempt to push the local development of the sport through greater exposure to tournaments such as this.”
