TNT Netball- AFNA qualifiers a must for TnT
« on: August 24, 2014, 01:50:07 PM »
Been attending and supporting the national netball Calypso girls who are participating in the 2014 AFNA Championship Tournament which runs from Aug 19th-25th in Calgary, Canada. The top 2 teams get a spot in the Netball World Cup in August 2015. The 7 teams competing are Barbados (#9), Trinidad & Tobago (#10), Canada (#20), plus unranked Argentina, Cayman Islands, Grenada and USA.
Jamaica, ranked 4th, automatically qualified from the Americas region.

It has been fun to have an opportunity to support ones country and to see the discipline focus of our athletes and coaching staff. Very proud of this national team who does not always get the same kind of recognition as other national teams. They deserve our support and they need to know as they sacrifice  personal life to represent TnT nationals need to also show their support to the team.
The competition has been fierce even though the scores may not indicate as much. I am looking forward to the game on Monday against the other unbeaten team and arch nemesis - Barbados. Today we take on Grenada.

Live streaming, has been arranged for Monday's 16:30 game Canada v USA and 18:30 game Barbados v Trinidad & Tobago (MDT local time) at: http://www.sportscanada.tv/acac/index.php/sait-trojans

Scores to date:

TNT 68 v USA 28
TNT 59 vCanada 38
TNT 116 v Argentina 11

Was at the U-20 WC in Toronto in 1996.

Have to admit I got a whole new respect for that sport. Definitely not boring.
Trust the Jamaicans to almost get into a fight in Netball.  :)

NZ hammered India 150-0. It was painful to watch.

However, it was on the far court, so I only watched a little of that. ;-)

I am surprised only the finalists qualify for the World Cup. ??? Anyway I wish the Calypso girls success and hope they go all the way. From what I've seen on the regional and commonwealth stage our netball team has performed badly since the 90's so hopefully this tournament will be a turn around in the right direction for T&T
