Sol Barbados Supports Primary School Tennis

Sol Barbados Supports Primary School Tennis

On the 15th February 2015, Sol collaborated will the Barbados Tennis Association to launch a Primary School Initiative. The genesis of the programme was to follow in the footsteps of The International Tennis Federation’s Play and Stay Programme which is a Global Programme to grow participation worldwide, by promoting tennis from the primary level, as an easy, fun, and healthy sport for all.

The three primary schools currently participating in the program are; Blackman and Gollop, Grantley Prescod Memorial and Luther Thorne. This partnership has allowed the children from those schools to benefit from the experience in a very tangible way, and allow them to acquire (from early) the skills required to play the game.

The end of term session which took place on Wednesday December 05 2018, was fun and enlightening, and was attended by the following persons:

Christian Maxwell – Coach – He coaches the children from the three schools in the Sol Programme.

Julian Baird  – Coach

Mr. Vanderpoole – Games Teacher

Roger Millar  – Manager/Coach – at the Wildey Tennis Centre – He assists with the Sol Programme

Sydney Lopez – Coach

John Goede – Regional Development Officer for the Caribbean

Morgot Thomson – School Tennis Coordinator

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the session. They had a great time, and were very proud to show me what they had learnt and how well they could play tennis”. – Quote from Mrs. Denise Mendes, Sale Executive – Retail at Sol Barbados Ltd
