Slow start for Suva volleyball

DEFAULTS marred the first round of competition after the break for the festive season during the Suva Volleyball Association weekly competition yesterday.

Competition official Iliesa Raketekete said many teams did not turn up for their games at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts in Laucala Bay.

However, organisers re-arranged the draws to give every team that turned up a chance to play.

Only one challenge match was played in every grade and the respective title holders retained their titles.

"Marist retained the super premier title, Islanders held on to the premier title and Delta get to keep the women's title for another few weeks," Raketekete said.

"I think we started the competition early and maybe that is why teams didn't turn up. Or maybe some of their players are still in the villages or islands after the festive season."

He said they would host a tournament tomorrow at the National Netball Centre as a buildup to the Battle of the Powerhouse next weekend.

"Entry is $30 and the winner will walk away with $100. We will have to see how many teams register because if there is a poor response, then we will just have our training."

Suva will face Raiwai in the Battle of the Powerhouse in the under-15, U17, U19, U21, masters and open grades.

Results:

Men's: Cakau 3 Toba 2, super premier challenge: Marist 3 Celtics 0, premier challenge: Islanders 3 Jammers 1, Marist 3 Cakau 0, Rockets 1 Jammers 3, Frontliners 0 Rockets 3, Toba 3 Celtics 2, Jammers 3 Qauia 1, Frontliners 0 Qauia 3.

Women's: Delta 2 Reef 1. Challenge: Delta 2 Highlanders 1.
