THE Suva Volleyball Association will be hosting its first-ever inter-district tournament this weekend.

SVA president Viliame Katia said players would play in teams where they resided.

Katia said this new concept would not only help lift the standard of volleyball in Suva but also see that players were evenly distributed in the participating teams.

Teams that play in the Suva volleyball competition represent areas from Nasinu to Naboro.

"We believe we will have a much better spread of players in the teams participating in the tournament,' Katia said. "What we want to do is put in place a tougher competition compared to the one we have right now.

"We also want to introduce this competition to the Fiji Volleyball Association."

Katia said for this year's competition they would only allow players from the Suva association.

"We hope to give players the opportunity play in a tougher competition and I believe we are going in that right direction with the start of this tournament," Katia said.

The one-day tournament will be held at the National Netball Centre at Laucala tomorrow.
