THE Fiji Sports Council has once again stepped forward to organise sports competitions in a bid to promote healthy living.

The council has organised a volleyball and hockey tournament and is calling on interested business houses to join the fight against non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

Council events manager Eroni Tawayaga said tournaments would begin at the end of this month and last nine to ten weeks.

"In the past few months there has been a lot of fatalities from other organizations from heart failure which is mainly caused by NCDs," he said.

"Most of the fatalities are aged around early 30s — 45 years old.

"This can be avoided through regular and active exercise such as sports.

"The FSC is organising a business houses sports competition in an effort to promote sports, health and fitness within workplaces."

The volleyball tournament will be held at the FMF Gymnasium from May 28 for nine weeks.
