The Tourism Enhancement Fund TEF has invested $2 million in sponsorship towards the 37th staging of the Senior Caribbean Squash Championships scheduled to take place at the Liguanea Club in Kingston, August 21 to 27.

The Championships will feature 150 participants representing eight countries in the region – Jamaica, Barbados, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guyana, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Executive Director, TEF, Dr. Carey Wallace, spoke to the value of sports and tourism at the Championships launch, held at the Liguanea Club in Kingston on Tuesday, noting that the sponsorship is not just a “one-off” support.

Dr. Wallace pointed out that with sports tourism, there are “multiple wins” for destination Jamaica, as the success of the country’s athletes on the global stage has boosted the popularity of the destination, resulting in increased visitor arrivals.
