THE organisers of the Rewa Delta 7s have postponed the tournament which was supposed to be held this weekend at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Tournament co-ordinator Apolosi Vakaloloma said they were unable to attract the required number of teams for the two-day tournament which was supposed to start on Friday.

He said the tournament would now be held on September 20 at the same venue.

"We managed to get only 11 teams which paid their registration in full. We needed 32 teams for this tournament. There were some teams which had registered but didn't pay the entry fee on time," Vakaloloma said.

"There are also some other 7s tournaments happening this weekend and most of the clubs that we were targeting will be competing there."

Vakaloloma said because of time constraints, they would not host the netball tournament as planned.

The tournament is sponsored by Perfect Aluminium. Entry fee is $170 and the cup winner prize purse is $1500.
