Pigeon Point Heritage Park and Turtle Beach were among the sites considered for beach sports.Pitt told Newsday the opportunity to be part of the multi-sport international games has him “pumped” but he is tempering his excitement “until I get the report back from the Commonwealth Games Federation.”He said, “They came to Trinidad and then over to Tobago the next day to look at various sites to host the beach volleyball. For track and field events, we visited the Dwight Yorke Stadium…We are waiting on the report from the federation to advise us on what will be hosted and at what venue.”Pitt said the initial reaction of the Commonwealth Games Federation CEO was favourable. The report is expected to be done in a month.The seventh Commonwealth Youth Games will be hosted in TT from August 1-7, 2021.
