The Jamaican male beach volleyball pairs of Mark Lewis and Ryck Webb (Team A) and Christopher 'Froggy' Walters and Donovan 'Larry' Richards (Team B) are through to the semi-finals of the 2016 Male Olympic Beach Volleyball Qualifier being played in Trinidad and Tobago.

Playing against the third seeded US Virgin Islands (USVI) teams, the seventh-seeded Jamaicans pulled out a hard-fought 2-1 match victory. In the first match, USVI A handed Jamaica B their first defeat 23-21, 21-15. Jamaica A then defeated USVI B 21-17, 21-14 before outlasting USVI A 15-13 in a ding dong Golden Set battle.

The Jamaicans now await either Barbados, Aruba, or Suriname in the semi-finals.
