THE Nadroga Volleyball Association will organise a mini-knockout tournament today.

The tournament was supposed to be held last week but was moved to give participating teams more time to prepare.

Games official Judy Kumar said there had been a lot of interest from the teams.

"There is lot of response from some new teams that will be participating," Kumar said.

"Also teams like Nahehevia and Salad Bowl from Navosa will be a big threat to Essendon which will have the services of Nadroga reps Asesela Botei and Uraia Waqatabu."

Kumar has urged the people of Nadroga/Navosa to flock to Lawaqa in large numbers to support the sport.

He said they would have open trial for the Western Rally during the competition. "We are looking forward to the tournament and hope the weather will be fine to run our games at Lawaqa Park.

"Also, Essendon and Salad Bowl will face off to determine who holds the Kumar Trophy,

"Both teams played in the knockout final two weeks ago and since Essendon won last time, Salad Bowl will be out to pull one back."
