SQUASH Fiji takes their first steps towards next year's Pacific Games by hosting the first major tournament of the year next month.

National coach Isimeli Cerelala said more than 80 players from around the country were expected to compete in the tournament which would serve as a platform to identify future national reps and also to fundraise for the Pacific Games.

"We haven't had a major tournament for a long time and it's time we got things moving and start our preparations for the Pacific Games," he said.

"Entry fee is $20 for the seniors, $10 for the juniors and $15 for non-players."

Cerelala said they would also host their annual general meeting after the finals.

"During the AGM we will elect new office bearers, reveal the new national logo and also reveal the new national uniform."

Meanwhile, FINTEL in partnership with Kidanet has pledged $1,500 towards the event.

Acting chief executive for FINTEL George Samisoni said it was their corporate responsibility to give back to the community.

"Squash is a good sport for weight loss and the fight against Non-Communicable Diseases," he said.
