Share post:

David Arrendell has a date with destiny.
And that destiny’s name is Julian “Michael Jackson” White.
Arrendell, Christ Church’s representative, is to face Barbados’ No.1 road tennis player in the feature match of the finals of the National Sports Council’s Inter-parish Road Tennis Championships this weekend at Dover.
This was revealed at a Press conference at the NSC’s headquarters where the draw took place on Wednesday.
Representing Christ Church in the “A” class, Arrendell will lock horns with White tomorrow night, while his teammate Marson Johnson will take on Antoine Daniel.
Also tomorrow, in the veterans’ category, Christ Church’s “chicken” duo of Glen “Chicken” Harris and Ian “Chicken” Yearwood, will face St Michael’s Andrew Holder and Jeffrey “Bing Crosby” Layne, respectively.
Tonight’s finals will see Emar Edwards, representing St George, against St James’ Dario Hinds in the juniors, while the hard-hitting Kim Holder, of St George will take on St Michael’s first-time finalist, Suzanne Scantlebury in the women’s final.
The “B” class finals, also slated for tonight, will see Mark “Venom” Griffith, of St Michael, take on Simon Bayne,
of Christ Church, while Griffith’s partner Chester “Boy Boy” Brewster will play Kamal Durant.
Director of Sport Erskine King said the finals, to be televised live on CBCTV8, would start at 8:05, while Saturday’s grand finale would commence at 7:35 p.m.
He said that this year would see a tighter schedule, with players allowed a maximum of 60 seconds between points in an effort to finish the event in a timely fashion. (RB)
