Imagine your typical game of netball. Now imagine all of the players in sleepwear, teddies, lingerie, pajamas, boxer shorts, and envision the game being played at a much higher tempo than usual, and with rules encouraging scoring.
This Saturday, 15 November, will witness a first for residents of La Clery and environs and the wider Saint Lucian Public; as the Vide Boutielle Cultural Club (VBCC) will put a twist on the already popular netball event known as ‘Midnight Madness.’
The event which is not new to Saint Lucia will be played for the first time in a Fast5 format on the VBCC Court in La Clery from 8pm, with features including goals worth multiple points, rolling substitutions and power plays.
Each female team must include at least two male players and male teams must include at least two female players. Registration for the event is still open, and teams can register for just $35. There will be several prizes up for grabs including the sexiest dressed team.
In addition to the exciting netball action, participants and spectators will also experience the very first Midnight Madness After Party featuring Scady Dot P and Hyper D; two of the islands leading DJs. It will also feature a live performance from VBCC’s very own ‘Bad Gal Kira’ doing her popular soca track ‘Get Silly.’ Admission to the After Party is $5.
Midnight Madness Fast5 Edition is one of several recent events which VBCC has undertaken in an attempt to uplift the community from various angles. Our recently held Mele’ Kweyol and Breast Cancer Panel Discussion are just a couple of the activities of note.
VBCC Sports Officer Sharm Jn. Pierre hopes that the event will help to promote the sport in the community while also increasing interest in the club.
