SVG moves up the INF rankings
St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) is just outside the top 20, on the latest International Netball Federation (INF) rankings, released earlier this month. SVG has moved from 23rd to 21st.
SVG in the process nipped Grenada, which won the inaugural ECCB/ OECS International Netball Series, held here last year. In that series, St Vincent and the Grenadines won six matches and lost two.
It is a welcomed improvement for SVG, which returned to the ranking table in 2018, following an eight-year absence, as this country was inactive at the international level.
