On May 28, the Tobago Cricket Association (TCA) made payments to the respective triumphant teams for the 2024 campaign when they distributed $99,000 to the varying recipients during a soft at the Shaw Park office, Scarborough, Tobago.

On May 26, Scarborough/Mason Hall cricket club finished the TCA's Twenty/20 tournament on a high when they got a five-wicket victory against Bago Gladiators at the Cyd Gray Sporting Complex in Roxborough, Tobago. In the final, hard-hitting former West Indies under-19 allrounder Joshua James starred with the bat for Scarborough when he thumped an unbeaten fifty to take his team to the $15,000 prize.

Gladiators batsman Leron Lezama won the MVP in the T20 tournament after rattling up an impressive 322 runs. Scarborough captain Ako George accumulated the most runs in the 40-over tourney with 269 runs, while Canaan/Bon Accord spinner Antonio Providence copped the MVP award in the competition after putting in a Man of the Match display in the final to guide his team to victory against the Gladiators.
