Bermuda Netball Association Receives Grant

January 21, 2017

The Bermuda Netball Association has received a £30,000 grant through the Bermuda Olympic Association via an application that was made on behalf of netball under the Commonwealth Games Federation Developmental Programme 2015-2018, in attempt to qualify for next year’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018.

The funds are specific for Bermuda’s Commonwealth Games qualification bid and can only be used for training and regional competitions that target the qualifying process.

In order to qualify for next year’s Commonwealth Games, Bermuda must be ranked among the top 14 countries in the world by July 2017.

Bermuda is currently not ranked, but is considered one of nine rated teams, that will have to play a minimum of eight international test matches to earn an official world ranking.

The BNA are hoping to fulfil that quota of matches at the Netball Europe Open to be held in Aberdeen, Scotland, May 11th to 14th. The BNA Senior Squad consists of 25 players, including five based overseas and are currently training three times a week.
