Soufriere basketballers will certainly have a new spring in their step when playing on their refurbished basketball court courtesy of Anse Chastanet & Jade Mountain Resorts together with the Soufriere Regional Development Foundation.

The organizations have just completed the first stage of major renovations of the Soufriere Community Basketball Court as part of a new project they co-funded and operated together. Months of planning were required to ensure they would be investing in materials that could withstand wear and tear and provide a long-term solution to the dilapidated court, and they hope the community is pleased with the final result. After this first stage, the three collaborators are also working together with the MP Herod Stanislaus to acquire permanent seating for the court as well as new light fixtures. By doing so they hope to empower the basket ballers to be able to operate professionally organized tournaments and use the funds generated to maintain the facility going forward.
