TEAMS have been given until today to fully pay their registration fees for the Marist volleyball tournament that will be played next week.

A total of 32 men's and 16 women's teams have registered for the tournament and chairman of the organising committee Viliame Katia said some had only partially paid their fees.

"Teams that have partially paid their registration fees have been given extension till 7pm on Thursday (today)," he said.

"Due to the number of teams calling in expressing interest, some of the teams that have paid in the least deposit will be dropped from the draws to make way for teams that are willing to pay the registration fees in full."

And some teams have been axed from the tournament.

"So yesterday (Tuesday), the Wesley Blacks team from Rewa Street have been dropped to make way for Giants from Raiwaqa who have paid their registration in full.

"We have moved the due date for teams that are yet to pay in full from Friday to Thursday.

"We apologise for the inconvenience caused but we cannot delay the naming of the draws."

The Bula FM tournament would be played on June 27 and 28.
