Also in attendance were several GLTA executives including President Samuel Barakat, VicePresident Robin Singh, Secretary Molly Hassan and committee member Illeana Boodoo.
GBTI was represented by Marketing and Communications Officer of GBTI High Street Branch Nadia De Abreu and Public Relations and Mar k eting Manager of GBTI Pamela Binda.
The tournament which commences on June 22nd at the Bank’s Bel-Air Park Facility, will feature the nation’s leading players competing in the Junior, Senior and Veteran Divisions.
