Trinidad & Tobago are one of the five teams making their FIVB World Grand Prix debut this year, alongside Cameroon, France, Hungary and Venezuela.
They have never qualified to any FIVB competition and have never won any major international tournament. Their best performance at the NORCECA Championship was a sixth place in 2013, after beating Costa Rica in pool play, but losing to Canada in the quarterfinals and then to Mexico in the 5th-place playoff. They narrowly missed out on a podium finish at the 2010 Central American & Caribbean Games, when they lost 3-1 to Costa Rica in the bronze medal match. At a more regional level, however, Trinidad & Tobago have completely dominated the Caribbean Championship since 2006.
