Netballers off to N. Ireland
The Barbados senior netball team left the island yesterday afternoon to play their first international matches in more than a year.
Team Barbados will take on Caribbean neighbours St Lucia on Thursday afternoon in the nightcap match of the International Festival of Netball at the Antrium Forum in Northern Ireland.
Barbados, St Lucia, Botswana and Northern Ireland are competing in the quadrangular series.
The opening ceremony will be held earlier that evening, followed by the first match between the hosts and Botswana.
