THE Pearl Resort hosted the five netball teams to a special lunch at the resort in Pacific Harbour yesterday.

The three participating Digicel Tri-Series sides of Papua New Guinea, Northern Ireland and hosts the Fiji Pearls enjoyed the lunch reception together with the touring Tongan nation team and the Fiji A netball side.

It was a fun-filled reception as the Pearl Resort Dance Group entertained the players with their Fijian meke and led a "Tui Boto" dance as players and officials laughed their hearts out, enjoying the variety of body moves.

Fiji Netball officials acknowledged the visiting teams with gifts while former Australian Diamonds player and Tongan netball coach Mo'onia Gerrard was given a special giveaway.

The Pearl Resort dance group brought an atmosphere of laughter at the event displaying what they're good at, dancing.

During her speech, Fiji Pearls netball captain Matila Waqanidrola thanked all teams for gracing the event.

Gerrad said they look forward to another tour of Fiji in the future.

The two Fiji teams then sang the traditional farewell song 'Isa Isa Vulagi Lasa Dina' as they depart Pacific Harbour to prepare for the final round of games last night.
