The Americas Teams Go Head To Head For A Place At Next Year’s World Cup

From 24 August – 2 September 2018, eight teams will compete in the Regional Qualifier – Americas in a bid to qualify for next year’s Netball World Cup.

From 24 August – 2 September 2018, eight teams will compete in the Regional Qualifier – Americas in a bid to qualify for next year’s Netball World Cup.

The event, which is taking place at Garfield Sobers Gymnasium in Barbados, promises to be a thrilling competition, with just two of the eight teams participating securing a place at next summer’s World Cup in Liverpool.

As the highest ranked teams in the tournament, hosts Barbados (12th) and Trinidad and Tobago (10th) start as favourites to make it through the qualifier, both teams having competed at the last Netball World Cup in Sydney. Renowned for their physicality, Trinidad and Tobago have competed at all 14 previous World Cups and in 1979 they were joint winners alongside Australia and New Zealand – the only time a World Cup title has been split between three teams.

Looking to prove themselves will be Argentina, St Vincent and the Grenadines and the USA who are not yet ranked in the INF world rankings. St Vincent and the Grenadines will be looking to qualify for the World Cup for a fourth time, their last appearance coming in 2003 when they finished 13th in Kingston, Jamaica.
