A DISAPPOINTMENT expressed by executives of the Lewa Sewa Netters Association Fiji was the way the tournament arrangement was handled.

Association president Susana Liga said the tournament started late on the first day because of a breakdown in communication with officials of the Labasa Town Council.

Liga said on Monday the opening started at 1pm.

"And then on Tuesday, our players and team officials came in at 8am but were locked outside so we had to call the officials again," she said.

"So we were told to pay up the full amount of using the grounds and it really gave us a hard time because we thought we pay a deposit and pay up the balance on the final day.

"And to have our little girls hanging around outside the grandstand area saddened us."

Liga said the situation gave them another picture of the well known "Friendly North" town.

Special Administrator Vijay Chand said the gates were closed for safety reasons.

"We opened it after team officials arrived because the players came in first but our workers didn't let them in because we were worried about their safety."

But Liga clarified that team officials and parents always accompanied the students.

"They were never left alone."
