This is where the qualifier games will commence from Oct. 16 2022. Grange also agreed to be the official patron in the event after accepting an invitation from Netball Jamaica for the position.

The qualifying will include ten teams battling for the two left spots in order for them to participate in the coming 2023 World Cup games. Jamaica has already qualified due to its fourth-place global ranking.
