The Next Level Sports Club (NLSC) fourth annual Inter Corporation Dominoes competition is set to get underway on July 27 at the Banks DIH Sports Club, Thirst Park and the best sides in the country are expected to go head to head as they battle for supremacy, including defending champions, F&H Printing Establishment.
The last competition attracted 55-Teams and the organisers are aiming to better that amount this time around.
