Sporting events

A weekend of friendly sports excitement in Little Cayman kicks off on Friday, as Cayman Brac takes on Little Cayman in men’s volleyball. The game starts at 8 p.m. at the Little Cayman Beach Resort.

On Saturday, Little Cayman will see a first of its kind as a men’s junior team (aged 20 and under) from Grand Cayman takes on Little Cayman in men’s basketball at 8 p.m. at the Little Cayman Beach Resort.

Organizers note this will mark the first time that visiting teams from both Cayman Brac and Grand Cayman would have played competitive volleyball and basketball matches in Little Cayman.

“Little Cayman Beach Resort has been the gracious host of many sporting events in Little Cayman over the past two years,” noted Brac-based Department of Sports instructor Harold Sanford.

The basketball match came about after Grand Cayman-based basketball coach Victor “Voot” O’Garro came over to assist with a hoops tournament on Little Cayman in March, and came away greatly impressed with how many talented players were living on the tiny island.

“We definitely never expected to see four teams of such a high caliber. These players really surprised us with their standard,” said Mr. O’Garro.

“We are bringing the young players over to give them a challenge,” he said.
