The Oistins Fish Festival is still months away.
But the Oistins community still had reason to celebrate recently when they overcame Sayes Court in a thrilling final to win the inaugural Abrahams Road Tennis (ART) Challenge recently.
Playing at Silver Sands in the eight-man team competition, Tory Hunte, Robin Ryan, Trevor Callender and Chris Agard all registered victories for Oistins, while Randy Bennett, Ryan Andrews, Jamar Harewood and Michael Jones won for Sayes Court, leaving the scores tied at 4-4, and forcing a tiebreaker.
With the best player from each team chosen to represent their respective community, Hunte and Andrews came up against each other in the best-of-three decider.
Showcasing the composure and wide array of shots which had led him to his earlier victory over Lorenzo Gayle, Hunte comprehensivley defeated Andrews in straight sets, 21-16, 21-18, to help Oisitins walk away with the top prize of $800.
Organizer of the tournament, Wilfred Abrahams, told MIDWEEK NATION that he was very satisfied with the turnout and participation at the event.
He outlined plans for other sporting activities saying that “it showcased the tremendous skills and abilities which young persons possessed”. (RB)
