Speaker’s International Softball Cup set for Easter weekend
The inaugural Speaker’s International Softball Cup, which was initially scheduled to be held in April 2021, will now be played from April 16-18 at the Everest Cricket Club, Camp Road, Georgetown.
The organisers have indicated they are fully prepared to host the tournament and given the improved situation within the country as regards COVID-19, they anticipate a safe and successful tournament.
Speaker of the National Assembly, Manzoor Nadir, has pledged continued support for the Speaker’s Cup for at least the next four years. At the launch, it was disclosed that 16 teams will compete in two categories.
The initial thought behind the tournament was to use it as a platform to edify the public about the legislative arm of the state. Of the 16 teams, six are from overseas, who will play in the Over-45 and Over-50 categories.
The sponsors include MMD Hollow Blocks and Pavers, Trophy Stall, V-Net Communications, New Doctors Clinic, Beacon Café, Coss Cutters, General Marines, ACS Mining and Raj Ace Auto, Movements Family, Imtiaz Sadik, M.S Imports, JSB Bumpers, Clermont Cricket Team of the United States of America, Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, Two Brothers Gas Station, Right Aid Pharmaceutical, Guybiz Establishment, Rohan Auto, Windjammer International Cuisine and Comfort Inn, Power Producers and Distributors Ltd, Colin Tablot, Contracting Services and New Dimension Services.
