THE Fiji Secondary Schools Netball Association will be hosting a national tournament on August 14 and 15 in Suva.
The annual event is expected to have teams as far as Labasa competing at the National Netball Centre and the LICI Multipurpose courts.
Association president Lisi Narokolevu said they had more than 50 schools affiliated with them and were hoping to get 32 teams in each grade.
The grades that will be competed in the girls division include under-15, U17, U19 and open while the boys will only compete in the open category.
Natabua is the U15 and U17 defending champions while Ratu Navula won the U19 title last year. Dreketi High holds the open grade title.
"On August 13 at 5pm, we will have the official opening where we are inviting all the school officials and umpires to be present.
"We will have sports personnel speaking during the opening," Narokolevu said.
"We would also like to remind the schools to pay their registration fee by this Wednesday."
Narokolevu said an U17 team from Auckland made up of Fijians residing there would be competing in the upcoming tournament.
