20th Marist tourney

THE Marist Hockey Club will engage in community activities as they prepare to host the annual Marist Hockey Tournament next month.

This will be the 20th year of the tournament and the first activity the club has planned is a blood drive today at the National Hockey Centre in Laucala Bay, Suva.

Club vice-resident Martin Fong said community activities would allow their players to give back to the people.

"It's our way of giving back to the community," he said.

"The blood drive in conjunction with the Ministry of Health is because there is shortage of blood and one of our former members in the Western Division is among the patients who need blood."

"So we are inviting not only players but fans, families and friends to come down and donate blood because it's for a good purpose."

Meanwhile, Geotech Drilling International has secured naming rights for the club and the tournament.

Fong said the support of the sponsors was vital especially when they were going to host a tournament of such magnitude.

"The sponsorship from Geotech would go towards turf hire and prizemoney for the winning teams.

"We expect to have more than $2000 in total prizemoney and we will confirm that amount once co-sponsors are revealed in the weeks leading up to the tournament."

The tournament is scheduled for September 19, 20 and 21 at the National Hockey Centre.
