Eastern Caribbean Central Bank Media Release

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) in collaboration with the OECS Commission and the Grenada Netball Association will host the 27th OECS/ECCB Under-23 Netball Tournament in Grenada from 16 – 20 June.

This year, six teams will compete for the championship title: Anguilla, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines. Team Grenada are the defending champions.

The ECCB has been the official sponsor of the tournament since 1991, and over the years has been collaborating with the OECS Commission to stage this regional competition.  The ECCB’s continued sponsorship of the tournament demonstrates the Bank’s vision of fostering regional integration and its commitment to the overall development of the region’s young women through sports.

In keeping with its commitment to the overall development of the region’s young netballers, this year’s development session, which has been a key feature of the tournament since 1999, will focus on the topic: Building a Success Driven Team. Yvette Payne, Head of TVET of the T.A. Marryshow Community College will conduct the session.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
