Hand-in-Hand throws support behind Winfield Brathwaite Tournament
The Hand-in-Hand Mutual Fire Insurance Company Ltd has joined a number of corporate entities in adding to the betterment of the Winfield Brathwaite Junior Boxing Tournament.
The company proudly announced on Thursday that they will again provide sponsorship to the Guyana Amateur Boxing Association (GABA) for their previously named Caribbean Schoolboys and Juniors tournament, scheduled for staging from 16th – 18th August, 2019.
This novel tournament was created in 2016 when the GABA was voted the Most Improved Association of 2016 at the National Sports Awards Ceremony. It is the first of its kind in Latin America, and has provided a forum for the region’s best Under-16 and juniors to test themselves against each other.
Guyana has proudly hosted, and has graciously been crowned champion of, the three tournaments held so far.
This is the first time that teams from the USA, Panama, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic have been invited to participate in this tournament, as the GABA envisage that the higher level of competition would be a stern test for the region’s nursery.
Anguilla, Antigua, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Cayman Island, Curacao, Dominica, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, St Maarten, St Lucia, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago have each signalled intention to participate.
The Hand-in-Hand Mutual Fire Insurance Company Ltd has been a longstanding partner of the GABA, and has always been an unwavering supporter of boxing in Guyana. This company continues to contribute towards the sporting industry in order to enhance the development of youths in our communities and fulfil its corporate responsibility.
Courts Guyana, Associated Packers Industry, Cevons Waste Management and the National Sports Commission (NSC) are also sponsors of this tournament, which begins this evening at the Cliff Anderson’s Sport Hall. The first bout will commence at 6pm.
