X1 won the Raiwaqa Volleyball Association weekly competition at Ed's Court yesterday.

The side defeated Eagles by two straight sets in the final.

In the semis, X1, which collected $270 after the win, overcame Hawks of Nepani by 2-0 while Eagles defeated X2 by the similar scoreline.

Association official and competition co-ordinator Erami Rasaubale was impressed with the competition level.

He said nine teams took part in the daylong event which was the buildup to the tournament next week.

"It was a good build-up for next week's tournament. We have eight teams confirmed for the tournament already and we are urging the interested teams to submit their registration soon."

The Raiwaqa Volleyball tournament coincides with the Vanua Challenge which will also be held next weekend.

Rasaubale said they were giving teams that did not make the Vanua Challenge a chance to participate in a competitive event.

"Only the first 24 teams will be accommodated. Registration closes on February 26. Contact 3541448 for more information," he added.

"Entry fee is $50 with main prizemoney of $500 and there are other cash prizes up for grabs."
