Ovea youths form new volleyball club

THE Ovea Youth Volleyball Club has come to Suva from their village in Tailevu to get exposure.

Team official Ilai Yauviritaki said all their players were from the village and they formed the club recently as a means to combat crime in their community.

He said many of the youths were beginning to engage in crime and they wanted to give them something else to keep them occupied.

"This is the first time for us to come and play in Suva," Yauviritaki said.

"We formed the team to combat crime in our community because we believe sports is a good thing to keep our youths active and away from crime and drugs and alcohol."

He said they were new and were looking for a sponsor so that they could get a new uniform for competitions.

The team was playing friendly matches at the DAV College courts in Nabua where the Security Forces Volleyball Association was supposed to have their weekly competition.

Association official Timoci Senibici said they were forced to cancel the competition because the college management had told them that the courts were closed for renovations.

He said they would try to seek permission from Association president Major Nemani Vuniwaqa to allow them to use the car park at the Fiji Immigration Department in Suva for their competitions.
