THE organisers of the Uluinakau 7s tournament have urged clubs to pay their registration fees or face the axe.

According to the tournament rules, clubs could not be refunded the amount deposited after the closing date of registration if they fail to pay the full amount.

Already 48 teams have showed interest in taking part in the first 7s tournament of the year at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

"We're urging teams to please pay up the full amount of registration tomorrow (today)," tournament official Vasu Vesukula said.

"These 48 teams should pay the full amount or might not play in the tournament because we will only accommodate 40 teams. It's on first come first serve basis.

"By now all teams that have paid deposits cannot be refunded if they fail to pay the full amount because according to the tournament rules, if teams have paid deposits and fail to pay the full amount after the closing date, they cannot refund the money."

She said to avoid frustration, clubs were urged to take action now.

"We want to confirm the number of teams and make the draws so it could be released by Wednesday or Thursday."
