Maciu Malo
Wednesday, May 14, 2014

SOCCER players have stepped forward to revive volleyball in Ba.

Former Ba goalkeeper Isikeli Seva and current Ba rep Laisenia Raura have taken time out from their normal soccer training to revive volleyball in Ba.

The duo were part of the GEE's team that participated in the weekly Naidrodro Volleyball tournament held at the Ba market ground.

Tournament official Sovita Tabuarua said Ba had an abundance of talented volleyball players and all they needed was exposure.

He said the weekly competition was to identity untapped volleyball talent in the area and groom them for national competitions. Tabuarua said he was pleased to see the involvement of soccer players in reviving the sport.

"The GEE team is led by former Ba goalkeeper Isikeli Seva and also includes Ba rep Laisenia Raura," he said.

"The aim of the weekly mini-tournaments is to revive volleyball in Ba.

"We have identified some good players in past tournaments and we are aiming to give them more game time to improve their game."

Tabuarua has invited teams from Lautoka, Ba and Tavua to participate in the weekly competition.

"The inclusion of teams from Lautoka and Tavua will give our players the opportunity to gauge their standard.

"Our aim is to select a team from this competition and groom the players for future competitions."

The competition continues this weekend.
