Suva hosts v'ball

THE postponement of the Vanua Challenge has not deterred the Suva Volleyball Association.

The Capital City body has organised its own tournament to cater for the teams from the Central and Eastern divisions.

Association secretary Viliame Katia said the FBC Challenge would feature the eight men's and eight women's teams that qualified for the Vanua Challenge from the divisions.

He said Topline from Lautoka would also be part of the tournament.

"Since the Vanua Challenge was postponed because of the rain, we want to give those teams that have been preparing a competition, something similar to Vanua," Katia said.

"So all the teams from the Central and Eastern divisions for the Vanua Challenge will participate and Topline from Lautoka will also compete."

He said none of the teams would have to pay an entry fee for the tournament.

"Since they have already paid entry fees for the Vanua Challenge, we will not want them to fork out more money.

"Instead, we are calling on volleyball lovers to come out in numbers tomorrow (today) to watch the tournament because the gate-takings will be distributed among the competing teams.

"The tournament will be held at the Vanua Challenge venue — FMF Gymnasium — and will start at 8am.

"Teams can also use this tournament to test themselves and find out their weaknesses before they compete in the Vanua Challenge later in March."
