THE newly formed Qauia Volleyball Club wants to see their women players make it big in the national scene.
The women's side won the Suva Volleyball Association (SVA) challenge title when it was played for the first time at the LICI Multipurpose Courts in Laucala last Saturday.
But unfortunately none of them was picked for the Suva team to compete for the Vulaca Championship this weekend.
Club managing director Noatoga Leweni attributed this to their newcomer status, stressing that the team was only formed two months ago.
And now that they've made their presence felt, Leweni said the focus would be on developing the sport among women in their community.
"For a new team to beat a seasoned team by three straight sets is not easy," Leweni said.
"The girls played very well hoping to be selected but they were not but it's OK because this is just the beginning," he said.
"In the future tournaments that feature Suva, we hope to get some of our players selected in the Suva women's team."
With money the biggest challenge his side is now seeking sponsorship to continue the team's activities and winning momentum .
"The team is made up of high school girls and school leavers in the Qauia community and we really need assistance,"
"We hope a good Samaritan will come forward and sponsor our women's team for our competition and we promise to give results and the win in the challenge match is testament to that."
