TO commemorate Mother's Day celebration, the Women in Sport Commission is holding their annual "Mother's Day" activities this Saturday at the Victoria Tennis Club in Suva.

The day-long event, which will be open to the public, will have some exciting sports like tennis, golf, chess, cricket, volleyball as well as sitting volleyball for the disabled athletes being played.

Women in Sports Commission (Fiji) chairperson Susie Yee said invitation had been sent to all sporting mothers and families.

"A fun-filled day is expected with registration commencing at 8am followed by a Zumba warm-up before a walk around the park then light refreshments," Yee said in a statement to Times Sport.

"We thank the Ministry of Health, which has donated fruits for the day. During the morning there will be various sports for all to 'Come and Try' with lucky draw prizes during the day."

Yee said they were also thankful to the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre which had been invited to set up a booth with their awareness handouts, quizzes and prizes of T-shirts and promotional bags.

She said the FASANOC STOP HIV champions would also be present with their activities and a guest speaker, together with a nutritionist.
