The semi-finalists will receive $150 each.

Leroy Edwards, of SVG General Services, promised continued support for the development of the sport and the growth of the rural development programs which are presently in place to unearth the talent which is known to exist in these areas. He said the tournament next year would be extended to include the top 16 women and promised that it would be bigger and better.

The finals which were scheduled to be completed on Saturday were rescheduled because of rain. The tournament attracted 32 of the top players in St Vincent.
