ACTION SHIFTS to Port of Spain, Trinidad, this week as Barbados’ top junior tennis players, along with several from the United States, Latin America and Europe, continue their quest to improve their international rankings.

Close to 30 players who contested the week-long ITF/ Barbados international tournament, which ended last weekend, have taken their battle-tested skills to the ITF/ Trinidad Grade 4 tournament that concludes on Saturday.

Around 120 players from 25 countries are contesting the Trinidad tournament, which along with Barbados and Guadeloupe forms part of a Caribbean circuit for regional and international Under-18 players.

Barbadians Dylan Hall (6) and Matthew Foster-Estwick (15) are among the seeded players in the boys main draw while Kiana Marshall was seeded No.7 among the girls. While the Under-18s are doing battle at Eddie Taylor Public Courts, Nelson Mandela Park, St Clair, the Under-14s are competing at the Trinidad Country Club, Maraval. (BB)
