The Shaw Park Gym is expected to open within the next week.
Secretary of Sport and Youth Affairs Jomo Pitt made the announcement at last week’s (January 4) post Executive Council media briefing. And he is stressing that the facility is for the benefit of the island’s athletes.
“I want to make it abundantly clear, it’s not a public gym,” Pitt said. “One of the criteria is you have to belong to a club or an organisation to have access to the gym, and that club will designate who are the athletes that will have usage. So we’re hoping to have that meeting next week.”
Pitt said his Division will meet with the Committee, to determine who will have access to the gym, and also to work out a schedule.
Meanwhile, Tobago will celebrate the island’s athletes next month for their performances in 2018. The fifth THA Sport Awards will be held on February7that the Magdalena Grand Beach and Golf Resort.
