Go-Local Jamaica - Cable and Wireless World Netball Championship 2003

This year Jamaica is hosting this prestigious, dynamic and exciting championship competition. Follow the progress of the 'Sunshine Girls' online at http://www.golocaljamaica.com/netball/ This site promises to keep you up to date with the tournament.

More than 25 teams will be playing in the championships which will be played on three courts at the National Stadium complex and the other in the existing Arena.

The tournament will be played in two sections, with the top 12 seeded teams in one section, which will then be divided into two zones. The other section could be divided into more than two zones depending on how many teams there are. Teams in each zone will play a round-robin format, after which the top two teams will advance to the semi-finals.

It also gives you player profiles, the match schedule, results, commentaries and articles. Need I say more!
