SUVA 1 and Nasinu 1 look set to make the quarter-finals of the FBC Suva Volleyball Association Inter-District tournament when games continue at the FMF Gymnasium this morning.

Suva 1 played three games yesterday winning two and losing one while Nasinu 1 played two and won both.

Both teams played in the Super Premier competition.

Suva has one pool game this morning while Nasinu has two before competition moves to the quarters.

Tournament official Ratu Iliesa Raketekete said the level of competition had improved a lot from last year.

"We have done a lot to prepare this tournament and this has resulted in the improvement in the standard of competition," Raketekete said.

"The teams have also come well balanced and the lure of the prizemoney this year is helping improve the level of competition."

Raketekete said some teams were disappointed they could not play here because they had closed registration on Monday.

"From what we've seen this year we believe we will have a much bigger tournament next year. Even the number of fans on the first day surprised us," Raketekete said.

In the Premier competition, Suva 8 which consists of players from the Raiwai Volleyball Association, had a good start winning both its matches yesterday.

Nasinu 7 also had a perfect start winning its first two matches.

Early results: Suva 1-Nasinu 3 (2-0), Suva 3- Lami 3 (2-0), Suva 8- Lami 7 (2-0), Nasinu 7- Lami 6 (2-0), Nausori- Nasinu 1 (0-2), Suva 8- Lami 6 (2-0), Suva 1- Lami 2 (2-0), Nasinu 7- Nasinu 5 (2-0), Nasinu 3- Nausori (2-0), Suva 1- Nasinu 1 (0-2), Lami 6- Nasinu 5 (0-2), Nasinu 3- Lami 2 (2-0), Lami 3- Suva 7 (2-0)
