THE organisers of the Rewa Delta Uprising 7s are calling on teams to register for the tournament to be held on August 29 and 30 in Nausori soon to avoid disappointment.

So far 10 teams have confirmed their participation which includes top sides such as Gonetoga, Police, RSL Nausori Fire and Senibiau Uprising.

Tournament co-ordinator Apolosi Vakaloloma said they would accept only 32 teams for the two-day event.

"Red Rock won the tournament last year. This year marks the sixth edition of the tournament," Vakaloloma said.

"We are very excited with this tournament and we request the teams to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment."

Vakaloloma said the main objective of the tournament was to raise funds for underprivileged children living along the Rewa Delta.

He said they also aimed to expose their youths through this tournament and help rebuild the Rewa team which had been demoted to the B-division competition.

"Our major goal is to help the needy children living in our area with their education. Some parents can't afford to send their children to school and we want to assist them."

Vakaloloma said they were also looking for sponsors to help them stage the tournament.

"Veniana Sinudamu-Samson from Los Angeles, America has assisted us this year. She is originally from Nukui, Rewa."
