We believe this will be the first of many partnerships that will support the wellness of our sporting community,” shared Sheldon Simpson, General Manager of Distributions at Derrimon Trading Company Ltd, the manufacturers and distributors of Refresh Water.

We’ve never repeated our teams so every single year, we invite three new teams and it’s fantastic to have a new sponsor, Refresh water which has helped us a lot. This tournament was an important one because it’s very close to the schoolboy season, so every year, all the teams who are invited really look forward to this. And thanks to our partner, Refresh water the schools were able to play two games, and even the lowest point scoring team received a prize of J$40,000, so thanks again to our partner Refresh Water.”
