Teams competing for a place in the finals are expected to gather at five more venues, the Rose Bank Hard Court, the Calliaqua Hard Court, the Keartons Hard Court, the Campden Park Hard Court and the Bequia Hard Court.

Meanwhile, Corner Bar Double Trouble rose to the top during the Georgetown leg of the competition, which was held on Saturday, March 28 at the Chili Hard Court.

Double Trouble joins Digicel Emily’s Strikers and Team Crew in the finals, which takes place at a date to be announced, at the National Tennis Centre in Villa.

A total of eight teams will do battle in the finals. Forms can be obtained from the St Vincent Brewery Ltd in Campden Park, the Brewery’s sales trucks and from local bars.

Last year, the local team, Team Crew, placed third in the regional finals in Trinidad and Tobago and as a result they have gained a pass straight into the 2015 finals of the local leg of the competition.

Teams that come out on top in the preliminary round will receive EC$500 and five cases of Guinness, while the team that wins on the night of the finals will get EC$6,000 and a chance to represent SVG in Jamaica at the regional finals, which runs from June 27 to 28 this year.

Action begins at 6 p.m. on game day at the venues.

The tournament is being managed by the St Vincent and the Grenadines Football Association (SVGFA).

Teams must be registered in the name of a bar, while registration fee is EC$40. Teams must comprise seven players and a manager, four on the field of play at one time and team members must be 18 years or over. Females are also allowed to participate.
