With Jamaica having had a change of heart and opting instead to participate in the rescheduled Caribbean Netball Championships set for St. Lucia next month, T&T's task just became a little more difficult.

But the local team has received a timely boost with the return of professional players Samantha Wallace and Kalifa Mccollin - two sharp-shooters who will greatly enhance a retooled national team which is keen to do well over at the Beausejour Indoor Facility in Gros Islet from October 9th to 15th.

The unit is a mixture of youth and experience, as Coach Wesley ‘Pepe’ Gomes has an eye on the future as well.

National Under-21 stars Aniecia Baptiste and Shernece Seemungal, who excelled in Botswana recently, are among the new faces alongside Milika Peters and Shaquanda Greene.

The returning stars include notables like Coach of the National Under-21 Outfit, Rhonda John-Davis, Kielle Connelly, Candace Guerero, Onella Jack-Hill and Tricia Liverpool.

Apart from World Number Four Jamaica, T&T can expect stiff challenges from Barbados, if they show up, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada.
