Debris was thrown onto the courts that were due to be played on just last evening and with the Bermuda Netball Association Annual General Meeting set to take place on Thursday, the vandalism is sure to be a topic of discussion.
Back on June 1st www.islandstats.com reported that vandals struck at the Netball Courts at Bernard Park yet again.
The facility that was full of life just the day before with three matches played in the Summer League Season, but when the sun rose it was discovered that parts of both courts have been left splashed and smeared with paint.
President of the Bermuda Netball Association Kimale Evans said, This is really frustrating as we are the number one sport in Bermuda for female and we want to give them a place of pride, but to have someone do this is very upsetting.”
