NAKASI-based club China Town made a stunning comeback to win the Never Back Down Volleyball tournament at Ed's Court in Raiwaqa yesterday.
China Town beat Rovers 2-1 in the final.
Laced with unknown players, the side went down 19-25 in the first set but clawed their way back to tie the match with a 25-20 win in the second set.
In the final set, China Town piled on the points to win 15-6 and take home the $700 prize.
Competition official Erami Rasaubale said they were expecting 24 teams to participate in the tournament, however, only 12 teams turned up.
He said the low number of teams could be a result of players and teams spending time with their families to celebrate Fiji's independence.
"But we did managed to have 12 teams and they put on a really good show here," Rasaubale said.
Meanwhile, the RVA was the first association in the country to implement the one hand rule.
"The rule is not new. It's just that only we here in Fiji used to it.
"This is the rule where dunking is no longer allowed.
"In the past, we would see that when the ball is over the net and is on the opponent's side, the players would push the ball down.
"But that is no longer allowed and players will be penalised if they are seen to be doing this."
Rasaubale said the umpires from the Fiji Volleyball Referees Association were present at the tournament to see the rule was implemented.
The tournament was organised by the Raiwaqa Volleyball Association to celebrate Fiji Day
