ACSOG successfully retained the Nasinu Netball Association opening knockout title yesterday.

They beat Grasshoppers I 26-17 in the final at the Fiji Sports Council National Netball Centre.

The knockout tournament marked the start of the season for the Fiji Gold-sponsored association.

Association secretary Unaisi Tawake said they registered an increase in the number of teams for their competition this season.

"Last season we had 30 teams and this season, 35 teams registered with us," she said.

"This is good news because it proves that our popularity in the netball circle is growing."

Tawake thanked sponsors Paradise Beverages for their support and hopes their partnership continues over the years to come.

"Thanks to the sponsorship from them, we have been able to develop not only our players but our technical officials as well.

"We managed to send some of our officials overseas for training and one of them is a New Zealand C badge holder."

Tawake said the knockout competition was used to split the teams into two grades.

"We have premier and senior reserve and with the knockout, we were able to see in which grade we can place the teams.

"The competition levels high as expected even though this is just the start of the season.

"This shows that teams were really eager to compete."
