THE Fiji Primary Schools IDC Netball tournament received a sponsorship boost from the Bank of the South Pacific (BSP).

The banking giants provided the organisers of the event with 200 balls, stationery, outfits for umpires and $500 in cash.

The tournament is scheduled to be held in Labasa next week and Fiji Primary Schools Netball Association vice-president Timaima Nailolo said the support would help netball at grassroots level.

"There are 144 teams competing and each team would get a ball each and the rest would be used for matches," she said.

"We are overwhelmed and blessed by the support from BSP and it's memorable for us since this is the biggest sponsorship for us in our three-year history."

General manager of Human Resources at BSP Howard Politini said development at grassroots level was integral.

"This is part of our contribution towards the development of the sport at grassroots level because we believe that development at that level is very important," he said.
