An integral part of the tournament is the juniors section which runs during the day and is expected to continue for some time still. Over forty boys and girls are participating in under 10, 12, 14 and 16 competitions.

“We are glad that we could help the youths, help them evolve and develop them in the sport. That is the exciting part of this for us” said King, referring to himself and Excel’s Co- Director Samantha Goodluck.
