LESS than 15 spots remain in the Wairiki 7s tournament to be played on June 27 and 28 at the Wairiki Village grounds in Bua.

Organiser Akuila Turaganiqali said about 20 teams had confirmed their participation in the tournament.

He said defending champion Nasavu would return to defend the title.

"We have invited the Army club from Labasa, the Prison and the Police teams from Viti Levu to attend the tournament and we are waiting for their confirmation," Turaganiqali said.

"So far, only one team from Namosi has confirmed its participation from Viti Levu."

Turaganiqali said the tournament was the biggest and most anticipated event for village during the year.

"We don't have a lot of tournaments in the village and the ones that do take place are not as big as this.

"We will also have a netball and volleyball tournament and the whole event draws a lot of people from Wairiki and from all over Bua to come and watch."
