DEFENDING champion CBM successfully retained the Suva Netball Association season opening knockout tournament on Saturday.

They beat Veiyasana 13-10 in a tough final at the National Netball Centre.

Laced with national reps Lusi Robanakadavu, Taufa Taga, Maria Lutua, Una Rauluni and former national coach Unaisi Rokoura; CBM proved they are the team to beat this season.

More than 40 teams competed in the knockout yesterday and competition official of the NewWorld-sponsored association, Tanya Vatubua said stiff competition prevailed as expected.

The drizzling rain throughout the day failed to dampen the spirits of the netball enthusiasts who gathered at the centre to witness the start of the season.

Meanwhile, USP Reef are the new men's open champions.

They beat Lomaiviti Dynamics in the final while defending champions Veiyasana lost in the quarter-final stages.

Vatubua said the tough competition at the knockout had laid a solid platform for the weekly club competition.
