Ian Douglas and the Minister of Youth & Sports – Hon. Justina Charles.
The Windward Islands Schools Games are the biggest Games for the sub-region and feature competition in basketball (boys & girls), football, volleyball (boys & girls), netball and athletics (boys & girls).
Grenada, the defending champions, have already captured the athletics and girls’ basketball titles whilst Dominica has won the boys’ volleyball title.
The other titles are up for grabs as competition continues on Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd at the Benjamin’s Park in Portsmouth.
