West sports carnival

Maciu Malo
Friday, March 14, 2014

THE Fiji Sports Commission will hold a minor sports carnival for the people of the Western Division tomorrow.

The carnival is aimed at promoting minor sports such as bodybuilding, squash, tennis, boxing, athletics, basketball and cricket in the West.

Development officer Josefa Tuinamata has called on the people in the West to turn out in numbers and familiarise themselves with the rules and details of these minor sports.

He said the objective was to promote minor sports and encourage new players to join any sports they were interested in.

"This will be the first of its kind to be held in Lautoka and we are calling on the people to turn out in numbers to be part of this event," said Tuinamata.

"Minor sports are often neglected and the purpose of hosting this event is to educate the people about various sports they could be interested in.

"This is a golden opportunity for the people of Lautoka and surrounding areas to learn these sports rather than concentrate on rugby, soccer and netball."

Tuinamata said the commission had lined up various sports experts to educate people about the sports they wanted to participate in.

He said the learning session would be held at Churchill Park from 9am to 3pm.
