The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, through the Department of Sports and its executive arm, the National Sports Institute (NSI), has started with the repairs over the weekend.
Materials for the courts have been carefully sourced and made on-island to ensure longevity through the easy removal of the baskets before any disaster, according to the ministry.
The repairs will continue over the coming weeks at the various courts, including St. Peters, Dutch Quarter, Belvedere, and at the Melford Hazel Sports Complex and the Jose Lake Sr. John Cooper Ballpark.
