Invest Barbados is facilitating the introduction of road tennis to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

This special initiative , as welcomed by the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Community Empowerment, is leveraging off of the island’s participation at Expo Dubai – a six month long expo that provides an opportunity to showcase the many facets of Barbados beyond trade and investment.

“This is another exciting opportunity to showcase just how much Barbados has to offer the world as our relationship with the UAE continues to grow,” said Kaye-Anne Brathwaite, CEO of the state agency with responsibility for investment promotion. The CEO was keen to add road tennis to the Expo’s agenda for the period December 11 to 17, 2021 and thanked the Ministry, the Road Tennis Association and Clubs as well as the National Sports Council for the assistance rendered in coordinating the outreach.

As part of the showcase, eight popular and talented Barbadian road tennis players will be managing a schedule that consists of coaching, special clinics and a tournament (see videos below). The grand prize of the tournament (adult male and female categories) ) is a 7 day vacation to Barbados courtesy British Airways and accommodation provided by Coral Mist and Sweetfield Manor.

Barbados’ Minister with responsibility for Sport, Dwight Sutherland, praised Invest Barbados for the initiative, embracing it as a prime opportunity to further internationalize road tennis, as keeping with his Ministry’s vision for the indigenous sport.
