THE stage is set for the biggest volleyball tournament in Nadi this Saturday.

A total of 78 business organisations will participate in the ANZ-sponsored Nadi International Airport Stakeholders Volleyball Tournament at Prince Charles Park.

The day-long tournament will see a total of 170 teams with about 2100 players already registered.

The final team briefing for the tournament was held at the Tokatoka Resort on Saturday.

Tournament media liaison officer Otilly Rabuku said attractive prizes would be at stake for the top finishers.

She said this would be the biggest tournament.

"We are celebrating our tenth year anniversary," Rabuku said.

"When the tournament started it was only for the airport stakeholders. But four years ago, the committee decided to open it up to the other sectors to build network, foster relationship and healthy living."

The newcomers in the tournament are BLK Sports from Lautoka, Digicel, Island Hoppers, Ministry of Finance, China Railway, Fiji Dairy, Pure Fiji, BSP Life, AAPI Designs, Narseys Plastics and Medisure Pharmacy.

Matches would be played in the men's women's, mixed and masters categories.
