Savusavu starts competition

THE Savusavu Volleyball Association will host round two club competition today at Narain Park.

The association which was formed last year started with its 2014 season last week with six teams - three men's and three women's.

They are Black Rock, Red Light and Vuniyasawa in the men's grade and Tribel, Fusion and Naqere Flames in the women's.

Association president George Snodgrass said there was a huge interest in the sport in Savusavu especially among the unemployed youth.

But he added they needed to get organised, which they were able to do last year.

Snodgrass said 11 teams have registered with the association.

"The other teams have yet to come together as most had players who had returned to their villages for the Christmas break," he said.

Apart from hosting a national event, the association is planning to compete in other tournaments around the country as well as getting the schools involved in the sport.

"Some of our players need exposure as they have skills and talent and this will also give Fiji Volleyball Association an opportunity to witness the talent in Savusavu."

The round two competitions will start at 1.30pm and invitation is open to all volleyball teams in Savusavu to participate.

"The first challenge in the women's division will also be held. Entry is $15 per team with winner take all less the $5 per team for ground fee," Snodgrass said
