UWI games going global
THE 2017 University of the West Indies (UWI) Student Games were launched at the Cave Hill Campus last Friday with the unveiling of an app designed to help take the games to a global audience.
Organisers are promising nine days of exciting and competitive events in which the region’s top student athletes will showcase their talents following the tournament’s May 24 opening ceremony.
The sporting spectacle usually attracts hundreds of athletes, officials and supporters from across the Caribbean and is one of the university’s significant drivers in promoting regionalism.
Defending champions Mona, St Augustine, Open Campus, and host campus Cave Hill will each field a maximum of 150 athletes who will display their skill in ten disciplines – basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track and field and volleyball. (PR)
