AFTER a successful league competition, the USP Touch Association will now host a business house competitition.

The competition starts on Tuesday at Albert Park and organisers have already confirmed 12 teams.

Competition organiser Tevita Mau said competition would be played in the mixed category.

"So far we have FRCA, WAF, FNPF, Merchant Bank, RBF, Vodafone, Fiji Sports Council, Combined Insurance, UNDP, JS Hill, Tecair Marines and USP confirmed," he said.

"Also we will have games during the mid-week after work so that players who have family commitments on the weekend can enjoy the competition."

He said the main reason for the business house competition was to promote healthy living and give them a sport where everyone could compete in the same team.

"We want to promote health through exercise within the workforce and active participation in sports.

"We want to promote networking among participating business house teams.

"Also we want to promote awareness of the sport of touch rugby to the business community and provide an experience to delight our customers."

Mau said a team briefing would be held at the USP gym tomorrow from 1pm to discuss competition rules and other issues of relevance and a rep from the competing teams were requested to attend.
