THE Lautoka Volleyball Association will resume its season with a knockout tournament at the Sugar City multipurpose courts this Saturday.

A total of 14 teams have been eyed for the day-long competition.

FSC One will be the top seed in the men's category while champions Flames One will be the team to beat in the women's division.

Lautoka Volleyball Association president Timoci Gukisuva said the winners of the knockout tournament would claim the challenge cup.

"The defence of the challenge cup will start from next week," Gukisuva said.

"So there is a lot to play for during this weekend's knockout competition.

"We are expecting eight women's teams and six men's teams to participate."

"Our two women's teams are training daily in preparation for the Vanua Challenge next month."

Teams will have to play $10 court fees for the knockout tournament which starts at 9am.

The Nadi Volleyball Association also announced that club games will resume at the Airports Fiji Limited hard courts in Namaka on Saturday.

All affiliated clubs are to confirm participation for the 2013 season.
