The Barbados Netball Association (BNA) has not given up hope of a team competing at the 7th World Youth Netball Championships later this year in Scotland.

President Nisha Cummings told MIDWEEKSPORT they contacted the International Federation of Netball Associations (IFNA) after the organizers released the latest list of teams taking part in the August 22 to 31 tournament.

Twenty teams are slated to compete in the Under-21 event, but only 19 have been announced.

“We are waiting on a response and keeping our fingers crossed,” Cummings said.
