Bridgetown U.S. Embassy-Supported Youth Tennis Program hosts Mini-Tournament

Deputy Public Affairs Officer Rachael Zaspel, who assisted in the coordination of the youth initiative, is seen chatting with some of the children who clearly enjoy the opportunity to hone their skills.

60 aspiring young tennis players from three primary schools participated in a mini tournament recently at the National Tennis Center at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex. The tournament was viewed by just re-elected President of the Barbados Olympic Association, Steve Stoute.

United States Ambassador Larry L. Palmer and President of the BTA Dr. Raymond Forde addressed the youngsters as you can witness in the video. Ambassador Palmer and invited guests took a tour of the courts while the children learned how to become future tennis stars.

These students are participants in a youth tennis program supported by the United States Embassy and carried out in association with the Barbados Tennis Association (BTA), the Barbados Olympic Association, and the National Sports Council.

This does not prevent other Barbadian or Offshore companies from exhibiting Corporate Responsibility. The mini-tournament brought together participants from the programs at all three schools, giving them an opportunity to test their newly-learned skills.
