The Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) yesterday received the backing of WJ Enterprise for the staging of the fifth edition of the Guyana Softball Cup. The entity which is the sole distributor of Croxley Copy Paper, presented a cheque of an undisclosed sum to the organisers at its Regent Street location.
Supervisor Teresa Naraine, said the company is overwhelmed to be given an opportunity to be part of the country’s premier softball cricket tournament for the second straight year.
Naraine stated that the entity has been impressed with the success of the previous four Guyana Softball Cups, and it was an easy decision to recommit their support. She wished the organisers, local and visiting teams well, and urged softball fans to support the competition.
The Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) is the organising body of the tournament, and its secretary, Lalta Gainda, was pleased to welcome WJ Enterprise as an official partner of the three-day tournament.
Gainda added that such support is critical to the successful hosting of the competition, noting that an event of such magnitude attracts a hefty budget of approximately nine million dollars.
GFSCA member Petamber Maharaj also used the opportunity to announce that one of New York’s most successful softball teams, Mercenaries, is confirmed to compete at the October 30 to November 1 competition adding that preparations are moving apace.
This year’s tournament has attracted 24 teams in the Open and Masters categories. Wolf’s Warriors are the defending champions of the Open division, while Floodlights won the Masters title in 2014.
