A total of 12 teams have been confirmed for the KBL Shine On netball tournament in Lautoka this Saturday.

Host club Shine On will go into the tournament as one of the top seeds.

Last Saturday, the Shine On team went down to Bounty of Nasinu in the final of the City Steelers netball tournament. Shine On lost 27-28.

Shine On club executive Joji Lagi said they had sent invitations out to the clubs in the various districts.

He said they had also sent an invite to Netball Fiji for the participation of the national side and the Fiji Under-21 team.

"So far seven women's teams and five men's teams have confirmed their entries," Lagi said.

"The Shine On team is gearing up for the tournament. We had a tight match against Bounty in the final of the City Steelers tournament. We beat them by the same margin during a tournament in Sigatoka last month.

"For this tournament the credit should go to our sponsors Kadar Buksh Limited. Without their support we would not be able to hold this event."

The winner of the women's category will walk away with $500 while the runner-up will get $300.

The winner of the men's category will receive $350 while the runner-up will get $100.

The tournament will be held at the multipurpose courts.
