SUVA teams are top seeds in the Vulaca Championship which starts at the Vodafone Arena, Laucala, tomorrow.
However, the Suva Volleyball Association is not sure if their teams will participate in the two-day event after they objected to the tournament rules.
Association secretary Viliame Katia said this year's Vulaca hosts, Raiwai Volleyball Association was using rules no longer recognised by the world's volleyball governing body.
"It's important to follow the FIVB (Federation Internationale de Volleyball) rules at events like this for the development of volleyball in the country," Katia said.
Both parties were meeting to seek a possible outcome when this edition went to press last night.
Suva had earlier withdrawn from the championship when Raiwai decided to accommodate two teams per category from each district.
But they were back in after being allowed to field three men's teams.
Nineteen men's and 10 women's teams are participating in the annual event, which is the qualifier to the prestigious Vanua Challenge. The championship starts at 8am tomorrow.
