SVG won the Men’s Division and placed second in the Women’s category.

The SVG men defeated St. Lucia 3-0, Dominica team one and team two, 3-2 and 3-0 respectively, but faltered against Grenada 1-3.

The females recorded two 3-0 wins on the host, which also had two teams. SVG beat Grenada 3-2 but went under to St. Lucia 0-3.

The Vincentian pair Joseph Carrington and Robert Ballantyne retained the men’s doubles beating St. Lucians Jason Stanislaus and Chris Wells 3-1.

Ballantyne, this country’s national Singles champion bowed out in the quarterfinal.

David “Skies” Llewellyn though, had the best showing in the Singles. He reached the semi-final stage before losing to Stanislaus 4-1.

Stanislaus was dethroned by his countryman Adrian Albert 4-2 in the final.

Coach of the Vincentian team Elliot Charles said he was pleased with the performance of his charges.
