Director of Sports, Erskine King is assisting Cuba to promote Road Tennis, as a sport, in that country. King presented a delegation from Cuba with a gift of road tennis equipment, which included tennis rackets, balls, nets, the rules of the game, and manuals, and he indicated his willingness to provide Cuba with coaches to promote that venture, at the Accra Beach Hotel Resort yesterday. Over the past few years, Road Tennis has received much international exposure because the Barbados Road Tennis Association and the National Sport Council (NSC) have sent introductory material on the game to the NSCs in many countries.
In addition, E! Entertainment Television has repeatedly aired a programme on Road Tennis in Barbados worldwide over the past five years, as well as many tourists that visited this island have seen the game and developed a love for the sport.
