Netters get real support

The Cayman Islands Real Estate
Brokers Association recently became the title sponsor of the National Women’s
Basketball League.

The league boasts four teams in
Domino’s Lady Heals, Home Gas Flames, Silver Bullets and Welly’s Cool Spot. All
have been competing for several weeks.

Last week saw the end of the
regular season with Dominos coming out on top with just one loss. Home Gas
finished second, Silver Bullets came third and Welly’s fell into fourth in
spite of a two game win streak to end the season.

The President of the Cayman Islands
Basketball Association Bryan Hunter talked about the importance of supporting
women’s basketball.

“The real estate association’s
sponsorship is important to us in several respects,” Hunter said. “It allows
for the continued development of our most talented female basketball players
for our national team programmes. 

“It also provides an opportunity
for our more senior players to continue to play basketball and it increases the
level of interest in our sport from spectators and young persons, which we hope
will draw more and more talent into the sport in the future.”

Michael Day, secretary of the real
estate association, recently made a cheque presentation to Hunter and said it
was important to support basketball in Cayman.

“The real estate association is
very proud to be the sponsor of the women’s basketball league. Our sponsorship
reaffirms our determination to be meaningfully involved in the community.
Basketball is a growing sport in Cayman and we are particularly proud to be
involved with that growth.”

Hunter added corporate partners
allow local basketball to thrive.

“Without the continued support of
our sponsors we would not be able to continue our basketball programmes offered
to the community,” Hunter said. “We are very grateful for their sponsorship and
we look forward to working with them for many leagues to come.”
