Minister Highlights Delays in Antigua’s National Aquatic Centre Development


Sports Minister Daryl Matthew says the development of Antigua’s national aquatic centre has been delayed due to disagreements over design specifics with the national swimming federation.

The federation prefers to hire a specialized design team, potentially replacing the current plans, a request that came over 18 months after the initial pool designs were created.

Minister Matthew expressed his eagerness to proceed but noted concerns about the financial impact of hiring a new design team.

The swimming association cites communication issues with the current architects and believes a specialized team can better meet the facility’s international standards.

The original design included a 25-meter, 10-lane competition pool, a warm-up pool, a gym, and seating for 600 spectators.

  1. I’m seeing and hearing more in recent times from Daryl Matthew’s. Is he being groomed by the ABLP to replace the out of touch, out of sync and gravalicious Gaston Brown.



  2. Just a bunch of loosers. Always making excuses when their empty promises are exposed.
    Pssst. Daryl Matthew, they sold the land designated for the so- called aquatic center. Isn’t that also a problem?
    While you’re at it, what happened to the Harrison center formerly called ABISE? You got 4 million POUNDS to complete it, where is the money? The idiot DAWG was lying in parliament about increase in cost of materials, as if people are stupid.
    It’s just amazing how grant money and funding for projects seem to disappear.
    We the patriots of this country are paying attention because investigations will expose the corruption.
