BASKETBALL Fiji has increased its National Easter Basketball Club Championship prizemoney to further heighten the intensit of the competition.

Last year, the winners walked away with $1000 each but this has been doubled with the men's and women's champs pocketing $2000 each in two weeks time .

Basketball Fiji development officer Laisiasa Puamau said the increase in prizemoney would intensify the competition.

He acknowledged the Fiji Sports Commission boosting its sponsorship.

"There is an added $1000 to the prizemoney this year compared to last year," he said.

"So, we want to thank the Fiji Sports Commission for its partnership with us in securing the funds for the winners."

Yesterday was the final day of registration for all clubs. Puamau confirmed 32 men's and women's teams had registered.

"We have closed the registration. There are 20 men's and 12 women's teams."
