THE Sports and Recreational Commission seems not to have the capacity to run tennis in this country. At the recently held youth games the respective provinces were asked to provide tennis balls and only a few of them were able to meet that requirement.
As a result all of the balls which were used for the games were second hand. In any tennis event the world over and even locally participants are never asked to provide balls.
The way the match officials were treated also leaves a lot to be desired as they waited for payment from morning until 1900hrs.
The person authorised to release the money was nowhere to be found but had told the officials to be at the finance office in the morning.
They should set up proper structures administered by competent officials so as to keep the commission’s operational standards high.
