Antigua & Barbuda’s Sibley Charles was in fine form over the weekend, winning the Girls Main Draw before teaming up with fellow Antiguan, Brasha Dyer, to take the Girls Doubles of the Caribbean Jr Invitational Tennis Tournament here at the National Tennis Center.
Charles defeated Trinidad & Tobago’s Cameron Wong 5-4 (4) and 4-1in the finals of the Main Draw competition on Monday. She then returned to the court alongside Dyer to take the Doubles competition 4-2, 1-4 (10-5) over the T&T pair of Gabrielle Mackenzie and Cameron Wong.
Another Antiguan player, Jaiden Julien, was unlucky not to have captured the Boys Main Draw finals when he came up against Jamaica’s John Azar. Julien was defeated 4-2, 5-4 (3).
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Antigua & Barbuda Tennis Association (ABTA), Dianne Hillhouse said the tournament was well organised.
“[On Monday] the tournament ended at 3 pm which I think is the earliest we’ve ever had the event finishing but I think that is as a result of the efficiency of everybody on the ground. The tournament committee, the officials, the referee and everything was planned [well] and it came off without a hitch,” she said.
Planning for next year’s instalment of the competition, Hillhouse said, have already commenced.
“Even throughout this event, the committee members looked at things that could have been better, things they think can make it even more exceptional so once we have our meeting we will start basically, the first stage of planning,” she said.
In other results on Monday, the doubles team of Daniel Azar (Jamaica) and Tim Pasea (T&T) defeated the pair of Daniel Jeary and Beckham Sylvester 4-1, 4-1.
The Girls Consolation finals was captured by St Lucia’s Alannah Bousquet who defeated Alysa Elliott, also of St Lucia 4-1. Jeary captured the Boys Consolation over Nate John 4-2.
Gabrielle Wong (T&T) and Tim Pasea (T&T) were adjudged sportswoman and sportsman of the tournament.
