THE best clubs from around the country will fight it out for bragging rights at the Bula FM Marist volleyball tournament on Friday and Saturday in Suva.

Tournament official Viliame Katia said the teams would pit their skills against the best for the most lucrative volleyball championship in the country which had a total prize pool of $15,000.

"We have the best clubs from Lautoka, Nadi, Suva, Raiwai, Nasinu, Rewa and even Savusavu is represented at the tournament," he said.

"In the men's, the Lighthouse Club will be leading the charge from Nadi with Blackrock from Savusavu, while Lautoka will be represented by their top club the Senibua Knights.

"The Central Division has defending champions Marist, former champs from Raiwai the Rebels team, Blackhawks from Kinoya and even the Security Forces hope to stamp their mark too."

Katia said the tournament was the only one on the national volleyball calendar that accommodated club participation.

"In a way it will see to the participation of those that do not qualify to make up the association or district teams that play in the other national tournaments.

"So people can expect a feast of volleyball from day one to the finals."

Marist is also the top seed in the women's competition and they would face stiff competition from Flames of Lautoka, Neighbours of Nadi and the Brewers of Vatuwaqa.

"Let's not count out the Security Forces who have reached the finals in national tournaments before.

"So we urge fans to come out and support their teams, the sport will only rise with their support."
