UK: Jamaica 50th National Domino League

| March 19, 2012

Western Union are the proud sponsors of one of the Jamaica 5oth Celebrations premier events – The National Domino League, which is also the celebration of the Anglo Caribbean Domino League’s 20 years in existence.

As Jamaica’s 50th Independence celebrations kick into high gear and the official calendar begins to roll out, the National Domino League will invite domino players throughout the four corners of the UK to enter the competition and participate in the camaraderie of a great Jamaican community-building exercise – playing dominoes.

In such a significant year for the UK – Jamaica’s 50th,  the Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee –  the ACDL in its 20th year is honoured and privileged to have been commissioned by the Jamaican High Commission to host this event.

‘Jamaicans and the wider Caribbean Diaspora, will be truly spoilt for choice this year and I hope everyone will sort out their diaries  to ensure that they do not miss out on any event,’ says the Chairperson of the ACDL , Anita Witter. ‘ ACDL members are  a vibrant mix of men and women, young, middle-aged and senior citizens from different parts of the Caribbean, but all sing the same tune  of social activities – DOMINOES! This event, however is open to all domino teams, the length and breadth of the UK. The major difference from the ACDL is that the National Domino League is using the ‘Mental’ form of domino playing rather than the ACDL’s ‘coded’ form.

Grace Foods, which is celebrating its 90th Year, is the main co-sponsor of the National Domino League, and have been faithful sponsors over the years. Other sponsors include Digicel Ltd, The Voice and Gleaner newspapers, Jewel isle Rum Punch and J Wray and Nephew Ltd. ACDL through the National Domino League event is delighted to ensure that their sponsors’ products and services are projected to the UK Caribbean Community throughout the UK.  The organisers are expecting at least 40 clubs to participate in this tournament, covering 4 regions nationally. For further information on how to apply please log on to the National Domino League website or email or call 0794511065.

The start date for the competition is Saturday 28th April and the closing date for applications is March 24th March.
