Remember – Tennis is a sport which can be enjoyed by all regardless of age, ability, gender or social background. In Barbados, it is now accessible to more individuals through the Schools Tennis Initiative Development Programmes in primary and senior schools and programmes at the National Tennis Centre in Wildey, St. Michael.
The Barbados Tennis Association is the governing body of tennis in the island and oversees the development of all aspects of the game.
The Association is determined to welcome more people into the sport, to keep their interest alive and to help all players maximize their full potential.
After gaining promotion to Group II in 2012, our Davis Cup team of Darian King, Haydn Lewis, Seanon Williams and Russell Moseley together with Captain Kevin Yarde made Barbados history in September 2014 by beating Mexico in the Group II promotion play-off tie at the National Tennis Centre. Haydn Lewis won the deciding rubber to take the tie 3-2 after Darian King had won both his singles matches.
Victory against Mexico was the cream on the 2014 cake as the team had previously beaten #1 seeds and former World Group nation Chile in the first round in January with a follow-up home victory against El Salvador in April.
Barbados now ranked #40 in the Davis Cup rankings, have thereby gained promotion to Americas Zone Group I for the first time and will host their first round tie against #32 ranked Dominican Republic at the National Tennis Centre from March 6-8, 2015.

The National Tennis Center was bustling with activity last weekend as the Island Heritage Tennis10s competition saw scores of young tennis stars from 5 clubs come together to compete in 5 teams within 3 categories.
Congratulations to team Blackbird who won the team competition accumulating 26 points.
The Tennis 10s is an ITF initiative that introduces young juniors to tennis using low compression balls that encourage rallies.
Lance Castange-Clemont played undefeated in the Green ball competition. He delivered on important points in crucial matches to win all his matches and this division. In a close fought match Lance defeated Javonte Blackett 10-9 in the final sudden death point to ensure victory. The final match saw Lance come up against Aaron Jones and neither had lost a match at that point. The determined Lance defeated the athletic Aaron 10-6 in the deciding match.
The orange ball competition played on three quarters of a court was very competitive and the players were divided into 2 groups with 8 players qualifying for the knockout stage. Christian Gosselin defeated Jamie Hudson 10-3 in one semi, while Justin Atkins defeated Adam King 10-7 in the other. Gosselin, following in the footsteps of his older brother Lukas, went on to win the final 10-4.
The Red ball competition, which targets beginners 9 and under, uses a half court with a special purpose net. Neil King played undefeated in this group with Mikah Morgan as runner up and Zahria Trotman winning the girls.
Final results of the team competition:
Bajan Pride 18
Green Monkey 17
Flying Fish 11
