The Trinbago Day U.S.A Inc., will be hosting the 5th Annual Trinidad and Tobago Day on July 21st 2019. As the universe would have it, the Netball World Cup Championship match will be contested on that day. It is only fitting that we celebrate our 1979 Joint World Netball Champions, as well as, the 1983 and 1987 World Netball Championship teams. The Calypso Girls remains the only team sport in Trinidad and Tobago to hold a World Title. The performances of these three teams also places Trinidad and Tobago 3rd on the list of top performing countries a rank that they maintain up to today.
The Brooklyn District of Attorney Office will bestow Citations of Honor to the members of the teams at the celebration. Members of the teams or their family will be present to accept the awards. Attached is additional information about the event.
