Road tennis in good hands  

  Barbados’ road tennis is presently enjoying the type of national prominence and exposure never seen before.

At the senior level several lucrative tournaments have come to the fore and have been drawing massive crowds. Fans have feasted on the exciting play of the likes of Mark Griffith, Julian White and Darius Gaskin.

But road tennis organisers have also been developing “feeder” competitions at the junior level to ensure the continuity of Barbados’ indigenous game.

Over the past few weeks the Berger Royale/Cave Shepherd National Primary Schools Road Tennis Championships once again exposed the best primary school players in the island with names like Shakeem Nurse, Ajani Roach, Fozlo Brewster and Aaron Weatherhead, among others, showing immense promise.

Aaron Weatherhead won the lone game of the team competition for 2014 champions George Lamming.
