About 100 children of Raiwaqa between the ages of two to 18 turned up at the volleyball court at Derrick St to learn more about the sport. The association's sponsorship co-ordinator Salome Waqailiti said the club had been dormant and wanted to mark their return with something special.

"Now that they have the support of the community, they are ready to start the new volleyball season but they are requesting for sponsorship from corporate bodies in Suva to assist them for the new season," she said.
