SUVA reclaimed the Vulaca Championship title when they overcame defending champion Raiwai Gold on Saturday.

Raiwai had won the men's title last year beating Suva in the final and this time the Capital City side executed revenge on their opponents.

The Bula FM Suva side beat Raiwai Gold 3-0 in the men's final while FBC TV Blue Suva beat Security Forces by the same score in the women's final.

The men's final stole the show at the FMF Gymnasium even though it was played two hours late.

Suva had beaten Kinoya Gold 2-0 to book their final spot while Raiwai Gold had to overcome Gold FM Suva 2-1.

In the final, Suva were composed and consistent, winning 25-14, 25-20 and 25-22.

Fiji Volleyball Federation administration officer Keneth Lidise said Suva proved to be more physical in the affair.

"I think the outstanding feature of the Suva side was their fitness," he said.

"They seemed to have prepared well physically and were outstanding in the final."

In the women's final, FBC TV Blue Suva won 25-15, 25-14 and 25-17 over Security Forces.

To reach the final, the Forces side beat FBC TV Grey Suva 2-0 while Blue Suva beat Vatuwaqa by the same score.

Lidise said the tournament was a learning experience for them.

"We the organisers saw that the players would perform better if the tournament ended early.

"The tournament ran a few hours late and we would look into that when hosting the next event."
