Moet Hennessy recently displayed its unwavering and sustained support to regional, cultural and sporting development in the form of an artistic, creative and patriotic masterpiece at the Oxnards hardcourt, in Oxnards, St James. The western beacon of basketball excellence and home of domestic powerhouse, Lakers Basketball Club, received an outstanding makeover thanks to the vision and support of Moet Hennessy and local partners Bryden Stokes Limited and the talented hands of artist Alex Marshall.
During the ceremony in Oxnards, which was attended by Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, Member of Parliament for St James South, Sandra Husbands, and Minister of Youth, Sports and Community Empowerment Charles Griffith, the newly-designed court was officially opened with scores of residents in attendance. Prime Minister Mottley had the honor of cutting the ceremonial ribbon to signal the start of activity on the new court.
Moet Hennessy’s Managing Director for Latin America & the Caribbean Thomas Mulliez expressed his delight on the artistic display and presentation of the refurbished facility, while pledging his company’s support behind the nation’s health, wellness and recreational development as much as they have with the arts and entertainment.
Hennessy is no stranger to the basketball arena, as they have been the official spirit of the National Basketball Association (NBA), Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and USA Basketball for the past two years, a partnership which has brought benefits on and off the courts.
