Bigger fest next
A BIGGER, BETTER BARBADOS HOCKEY FESTIVAL is on the cards for next year.
President David Rouse said the Barbados Hockey Federation was eagerly awaiting the installation of the new AstroTurf at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex in Wildey as it had already received a lot of interest from overseas teams for next year’s festival.
The new turf is expected to be installed by October, and Rouse said the festival would receive a major boost once they could play on it next year.
“I have no doubt that we will have an increase and a good revival. We will probably reach, in a year or two, the stage where we would have had 18 to 20 overseas teams. I believe we will reach that stage once again. That is why we are going to start at this point in terms of marketing,” he said.
Rouse told SATURDAY SPORT that already interest has been shown from teams as far away as Dubai.
