The Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies will be represented by a team of 22 men and 10 women at the Annual Inter-Campus Games which will be held at Cave Hill, Barbados from Monday, March 29 to Saturday, April 3.

The three campuses of the University — Mona in Jamaica, Cave Hill in Barbados and St. Augustine in Trinidad — will be competing.

Male undergraduates will compete in track and field athletics, cricket, hockey, table tennis and football while the girls will contest track and field athletics, netball and table tennis.

Jamaica are defending champions in cricket, hockey, athletics and netball, having topped those sports in last year's Games at Mona. The Jamaican contingent will leave in two groups tomorrow and Sunday.

The track and field group will be leaving on Sunday after participating in the Inter-Collegiate Championships tomorrow at the National Stadium, and so too will be the cricketers after the first day's play in their Senior Cup cricket match. The cricketers will return home on Friday, April 2 before the end of the Games to continue their Senior Cup cricket match.
