Antigua and Barbuda Retain World Domino Title

Antigua and Barbuda retained the World Council of Domino Federation (WCDF) World Championships held in Guyana over the past week.

Antigua and Barbuda, after having won the tournament in 2016, amassed a total of 16 points to finish ahead of Barbados who had 12 points, St. Lucia with 10 points and Anguilla with four points. Hosts, Guyana, and the USA both finished at the bottom of the standings with three points each.

The champions picked up three points in the male three-hand, two points in the team four-hand, three points in the team pairs, five points in the mix pairs and three points in the Queen competition to finish atop the pile.

Antigua and Barbuda were victorious in the male three-hand and second in the team four-hand, beaten only by Barbados in that competition.

The Wadadli slammers then finished second and third in the female pairs while Barbados captured that competition. The team of Francine Hector and Bernita Richards finished second while the pair of Lucia Mack and Isabelle Bruney played for a third place finish.

Antigua and Barbuda rebounded to take the mix pairs with the team of Jason King and Sharon Matthew claiming the top prize. Francine Hector and Michael Roach finished third.

The champions were then second and third in the male pairs’ competition before first-timer, Joann Davis, won the Queen competition. Team Antigua and Barbuda is slated to return home on Monday.
