No NORCECA beach tourney for T&T*

Trinidad Express / TRINIDAD and Tobago will not be hosting a tournament on this year’s NORCECA (North, Central America and the Caribbean) Beach Volleyball Tour after all. After staging a leg of the circuit for the last five years, there was no tournament listed for this country when the initial calendar came out in late March. However, a few weeks later, T&T returned to the roster with the penultimate of nine events during the second weekend of November. But as a results of financial constraints, the Trinidad and Tobago Volleyball Federation was recently forced to withdraw. After staging the opening tournament in April, the Mexicans were scheduled to host the seventh next month, but this event is also cancelled after two devastating earthquakes there in the last few weeks. This year’s calendar now contains just seven tournaments, three less than were contested last year. Tobago has staged the final leg in the last three years, after the circuit had ended at Maracas Bay in 2013.
