SIX teams participated in the Suva Netball Association-organised pre-season games on Thursday night at the National Netball Centre in Suva.

The competition is intended to get teams in competition mode and help players regain fitness.

Competition official of the New World-sponsored association Lusi Robanakadavu said the pre-season games would continue for two more weeks.

"The committee embarked on this as a strategy to bring teams, players and officials together before our season in April and just getting everyone together prior to our annual general meeting to be held on Saturday March 1," she said.

"This was an initiative by the Suva Netball committee to assist teams in the Suva association to regroup, and have some fun pick-up netball prior to the season opening which is scheduled for April.

"It was a fun way of getting people back into the netball mood and pick up other friends and take the court."

She said teams still had time to enter the pre-season competition.

"There were a total of six teams and we had several rounds of mixed netball, women's and men's netball played alternatively and everyone had several run on opportunities.

"It was also interesting to note that several rugby players were present last night and used the opportunity to pick up on their fitness as well."
