ORGANISERS are delighted with the news of increase in participation in the Pineapple Cup and the South Pacific Bowling Carnival.

The Pineapple Cup started this Friday and concludes on Sunday while the carnival starts on Sunday and ends next Sunday.

Suva Bowling Club vice-president Martin Fong said about 80 bowlers were expected to participate in the Pineapple Cup competition and they had now opened the competition to women as well.

"Traditionally, only the men competed for the Pineapple Cup but this year we have opened the competition to women and this is part of our bid to bring all the bowls under one banner," he said.

Fong said no overseas competitor had confirmed participation for the Pineapple Cup yet but all non-Fiji resident competitors for the carnival were expected to be in the country before Sunday.

Meanwhile, major sponsors for both tournaments, ANZ, yesterday handed over a cheque worth $10,000 to the club.

ANZ Pacific and Fiji CEO Vishnu Mohan said they were committed to promoting sports in the country.

"We firmly believe that sports is a good uniting factor in the country and we are more than happy to promote sports," he said.
