THE Grasshoppers Netball Club will tour Australia next month.

This is revealed to Times Sport by the Fiji Bitter sponsored-Nasinu Netball Association secretary Unaisi Tawake who says the club will leave the country after the official opening of the season on April 12.

Grasshoppers, one of the top affiliated clubs in the association, has been invited to participate at the Inter-Sports Global competition in Brisbane during the Easter weekend.

"We have a local club touring Brisbane after the official opening next month," she said.

"They will be competing at the global inter-sports."

Tawake said they would use the tour to build relationship with overseas clubs. She said the association planned to host a tournament this season.

"This year, we want to make it different. We will invite some overseas teams to come and participate at local tournaments.

"When the Grasshoppers team returns, everything about the overseas teams coming will be confirmed. They are going there not only to play but build relationships and contacts."

The first tournament is likely to be held in June.

On April 12, the association's weekly competition will be officially opened.
