ST. CROIX - For the third consecutive year, a number of youngsters across the territory were able to enjoy fun and get exposure to the game of tennis as The Caribbean Education Initiative held Tennis Play Day in Paradise over the course of the last week.
The event, held last week in the St. Thomas-St. John district and on Saturday on St. Croix, was an educational clinic for students, aimed at inspiring school-age children to work hard and pursue their passions on and off the tennis court.
TORTOLA - St. Vincent and the Grenadines beat the BVI 6-0 to end the BVI Football Association's 40th Anniversary activities, as the hosts ended the four-game stint with a 1-3 record.

Following last weekend's St. Vincent and the Grenadines match, which saw the tourists missing more second half goals than they scored, BVI coach Avondale "Avon" Williams said they need to have a structure in place while St. Vincent and the Grenadines' Coach Cornelius Huggins noted his opponents should have a greater youth focus.
