DAY One of the Lami Carnival volleyball tournament provided some stiff competition from teams vying for the $300 prizemoney.

Tournament organiser Tepau Rota said they played all the pool games yesterday and finish with the knockout stages today.

Rota said competition was tough in the first day of the tournament and they believed it would get better today.

"We only had eight teams registered and we will play all our pool games today (yesterday)," Rota said.

"Tomorrow (today) we will just complete with final round of competition."

Rota said teams participating in the tournament are all from the Lami area.

"We don't have any big club or team in the tournament and these teams just represent the different communities in Lami," Rota said.

"The main objective of the carnival is to bring a tournament closer to the communities.

Rota said they would lobby the Lami Town Council for the construction of an all-weather court for the sport in Lami.

The winner in women's competition will receive $150.
