ECCB International Netball Series

The ECCB International Netball Series was launched in June 2019 with the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) as its title sponsor and forms part of the Bank's Community Outreach thrust. The competition replaces the OECS Under-23 Netball Tournament which the ECCB sponsored from 1991 to 2018.

The decision to upgrade to an international series hinged on the Bank’s desire to provide an opportunity for netballers from the ECCB member countries to play annual international matches, thereby improving  their ranking on the world stage. It is anticipated that this undertaking will facilitate the:

  1. Showcasing of elite netballers in the OECS on the international platform;
  2. Establishment of netball pathways for OECS netballers to realise their full potential;
  3. Capacity to monitor the respective countries’ performance against the rest of the world;
  4. Transfer and adoption of international best practices, with respect to netball umpiring and coaching;
  5. Marketability of netball as a sports tourism option in the OECS; and the
  6. "Internationalisation" of the corporate social responsibility profile of the ECCB; as the title sponsor of the only funded netball tournament in the region.

The ECCB International Netball Series is also geared towards contributing to the improvement of the sport of netball in the ECCB member countries and providing an avenue for the region's young women to develop both socially and physically. A personal development session which is aimed at enhancing the netballers’ interpersonal and professional skills, is included in the programme.

The ECCB collaborates with the Caribbean Netball Association and the netball association of the host country to plan and coordinate all the activities required to ensure a successful tournament.
