TOBA ended the festive season on a high after successfully defending the annual Tui Suva Volleyball tournament title yesterday.

The tournament, which celebrated its 20th anniversary, had 18 teams participating from the Suvavou, Lami area. TOBA defeated Hard Rock in the final by two straight sets (27-26, 25-17) to make it four years in a row.

Team manager Peter Zinck said the win was a good boost for the side as they prepared to resume club competition with Suva Volleyball Association.

He said they hoped to continue dominating the tournament in the future.

"The idea behind this tournament which is held on Boxing Day and New Year's Day is to keep the youths from this area occupied in something worthwhile," Zinck said.

TOBA received $300 and a trophy after the win.
