THE organisers of the inaugural Nadroga Navosa Provincial Youth Sports Tournament hailed the event a huge success.

And Nadroga Navosa Provincial youth co-ordinator Semi Tanikili has promised a bigger and better event next year.

He said more than 1000 youths gathered at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka for the event.

"This is the first year for the event and looking at the numbers that attended the event, we can say it was a huge success for us," Tanikili said.

"Even though we faced some hiccups because the organising committee was new to this, we managed to keep everything under control.

"And by next year, I think we would be more experienced and the organisation of the event would not be a problem for us."

Tanikili thanked their supporters and sponsors for their backing.

"We would like to thank Peter Mazey and his team at the Fiji National Sports Commission, Sigatoka Electric, Sigatoka Chemicals, Mr Price, Tavarua Island Resort and others who contributed towards the success of the event."
