Mrs Sophia Horner-Sam, Deputy Western Regional Minister, who was the guest of honour, said it is government's policy to give due recognition to all lesser-known sports.

She called on the Union to come out with a programme that would help unearth talents among students.

Mrs Rosemond Dsane-Selby, President of the GLGU said the competition is becoming one of the most important events on the Ladies calendar and they are determined to keep it as such.
