The Barbados Defence Force’s (BDF) national sports programme is being shut down.

The nursery for hundreds of talented youths over the last three decades comes to an abrupt end at month-end.

The abandonment of the sports programme means an end to opportunities that it provided in cricket, football, track and field, boxing and table tennis over the last 28 years.

BDF Chief of Staff Colonel Glyne Grannum delivered the shocking news to stunned participants and coaches at a meeting held on Tuesday. (MK)
