AFTER a lapse of many years, a team from Savusavu will participate in the Easter Volleyball Championships.

This was confirmed by Fiji Volleyball Federation official Kenneth Lidise who said a total of 53 teams would compete this year.

He said 35 men's team and 18 women's teams would compete in the event at the FMF Gymnasium on April 17 and 18.

"This is both from the Central and Eastern divisions and the Western Division," Lidise said.

"And after many years, a team from Savusavu will also compete and we look forward to having them here.

"Also making a return after a lapse of few years is Nasinu."

Lidise said the tournament would be the last major competition on their calendar for the year.

"The season ends after this and we expect really tough competition from all the teams.

"From what we saw at the last major tournament — the Vanua Challenge — where Lautoka won the women's title, we know the final event will be the biggest one."

Raiwai Gold will defend the men's title while Suva will defend the women's title.

"Whether they will remain champs at the end of the tournament, we will only find out on the final day of competition."
