Guadeloupe were undefeated finishing first and will move on to the next round, along with Bahamas, which was second after only one loss to Guadeloupe. Bonaire was third picking up their first win against Cayman and Cayman was fourth.

Volleyball Federation President, Kennedy McGowan says ” It was a qualifying match we wanted to participate and were hopeful we would make it to through to the next round but it was quite a challenge as a young team to be able to compete at the Island Game which is a mini Olympics so we are looking to have a good representation from the Cayman team at the 2017 Island Games which will be held in Gotland, Sweden.”
