This year’s Regional Cricket Tournament for the Blind and Visual Impaired is set for Guyana from August 21-28 and the Guyana Blind Cricket Association promises the best ever tournament in the Caribbean.
Over 42 of the Region’s best will be on show for top honors and will hope to impress the Regional to win places on the West Indies Team for the World Cup in Dubai and Pakistan in January 2018.
Guyana, Barbados and Jamaica are the teams competing in the week-long event, which was originally scheduled for July but was postponed because of the inclement weather in Guyana.
There are calls for corporate Guyana and the Government to get involved in financing the tournament, which cost approximately Gy$2.5 million dollars to host.
Assistance from Government and corporate Guyana will be most welcome due to the nature of the event, which is heavily dependent on contributions from outside of this differently able community.
For more information on the tournament, interested persons could contact Treasurer of the Guyana Council for the Blind Treasurer, Theresa Pemberton, on 670-3535; or captain of the Guyana team, Ganesh Singh, on 652-8975. (Sean Devers)
