VOLLEYBALL

The local men's and women's teams of Daniel Williams and Daynte Stewart, and Rheeza Grant and Abby Blackman have been drawn in very tricky pools for the first ever Beach Volleyball competition to be held at the Commonwealth Games at the Coolangatta Beachfront, Gold Coast, Australia, today.

Overseen and sanctioned by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), Tuesday’s draw ceremony for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) Beach Volleyball competition saw the 12 competing nations for both the men’s and women’s competitions drawn into three pools.

In the men’s competition, Williams and Stewart who ended 2017 as the top ranked team locally after capturing the Flow-sponsored T&T Volleyball Federation National Beach Volleyball League title last December have been drawn in Pool A along with Australia, Fiji and Caribbean rivals, St Kitts/Nevis.

The quartet of Canada, Scotland, Sri Lanka are in in Pool B while England, New Zealand, Cyprus and Mozambique comprise Pool C.

And in the women’s competition, Grant and Blackman, also the top ranked women’s team local and Flow competition winners will do battle with Canada, England and Fiji in Pool B while Australia, Scotland, Grenada and Cyprus are in Pool A, and New Zealand, Vanuatu, Singapore and Rwanda in Pool C.

The preliminaries run from 6-9 April before culminating with the Quarter finals, Semifinals and Gold and Bronze Medal Matches from 10-12 April, with all matches to be held at the 4000-seat capacity Coolangatta Beachfront venue.

The T&T pairings will headline this weekend’s start to the T&T National Beach Volleyball Circuit with the start to the qualifiers for the NORCECA 2018 Circuit and the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games in Barranquilla, Colombia, July 19 to August 3.

In addition to Williams and Stewart, some of the teams expected to compete in the men’s qualifiers are Stephen Enile/Steffon Hutson, Kurt Edwards/Kareem Thomas, David Thomas/Frank Whitfield, Josiah Eccles/Joel Theodore, Kevin Rivers/Jason Dennis, Marlon Phillip/Nathaniel Noeriga, and Nolan Tash/Brandon Legall.

And among the other women teams who will start of the weekend of qualifiers on Saturday from 9am, are Tsyan Selvon/Asma Charles, Phylecia Armstrong/Malika Davidson, Brittney Choon/Afiya Alexander, and La Teisha Joseph/Suraya Chase.

The level of play among the teams is expected to be of high quality as points awarded for the

A few fans stopped me to ask what I thought about the West In­dies' per­for­mance so far in the se­ries against In­dia in both the T20's and the ODIs.

2019 Pan Amer­i­can Games

The Pan Amer­i­can Games closed on Sun­day but T&T is still cel­e­brat­ing its his­toric per­for­mance, claim­ing 13 medals, the most ever.

I happen to be initially browsing but having caught my attention, I then perused thoroughly, the 2018 Oxford Business Group country report on Trinidad and Tobago.  There were a number of perespectives, snap shots and overviews written. If one wanted to get a well researched and documented overview of the economic and business landscape within the twin Island Republic.

31 July is CANOC day. A message was sent out. That it barely registered or caught the attention of sport stakeholders in the Caribbean is an opportunity not a slight. CANOC must embrace the opportunity to heighten awareness and engage in enhanced outreach to provide information about the organisation.

It is cold in Lima, Peru, host city of the 2019 Pan Am Games. In fact, it is winter here in the South American nation.

With the one-year countdown to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games officially underway, the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, (TTOC) has announced that TTO athletes will benefit from a pre-games training camp at the Japan Athlete Training Center Osumi, in Osaki Town, Kagoshima Prefecture, as part of Japan’s Host Town Initiative.
