THE Fiji Women's Rugby Union (FWRU) president Paulini Tamatasasa is calling on districts and provinces to support the sport.
FWRU will host the Women's Regional 7s tournament on November 2.
They also wanted teams from other parts of Fiji to be involved. She said so far only teams from Suva, Lautoka, Labasa and Serua had been active in competitions.
"I know there are teams and players in Kadavu, Naitasiri, Bua and Ra," Tamatasasa said.
"They are just waiting for support from their community. They need someone to come forward and encourage them to participate.
"So we are calling on the districts and provinces to be more supportive towards women's rugby teams and to encourage them and provide them with assistance if they need it."
She said 10 teams had confirmed their participation in the tournament.
"These are just the active teams from Suva, Lautoka and Labasa.
"But there is still time and we are confident we will get more teams coming in from next week."
Tamatasasa said they were looking at involving international teams in the event from next year.
"This could become a big tournament in the South Pacific but at the moment we are just trying to expose our local girls to competition.
"We will use the tournament to see where our weaknesses lie and then we can improve on it before inviting the international teams to the event."
Meanwhile, the weekend competition in Suva has been postponed to next week.
"With the rain in the Suva areas for the past two days, we have been forced to postpone the games because no grounds were available.
"The Suva teams are using the competition to prepare for the Regional 7s and the Coral Coast 7s tournament."
