THE much-anticipated ANZ-sponsored Nadi International Airport Stakeholders Volleyball Tournament will kick-start at Nadi's Prince Charles Park on Saturday.

Dubbed as the biggest volleyball tournament in the South Pacific, this year's competition has attracted 22 new teams and 21 new organisations.

Tournament secretary Lele Vereivalu said the tournament had gained popularity since its humble beginnings in 2004.

She said the tournament, which would also celebrate its 10th anniversary on Saturday, had attracted a total of 179 teams from 85 organisations.

Vereivalu also confirmed the participation of the ANZ Auckland volleyball side from New Zealand.

Some of the newcomers to the tournament that are likely to stamp their mark are BLK Sports, China Railways and White House Bouncers.

She said a new feature for the tournament was the catwalk fashion show on Friday night.

"This tournament started with only four teams in 2004 and we are amazed with the huge turnout this year," she said.

"Great prizes have been arranged for the winners including a catwalk fashion show on Friday night.

"There will be five categories of competition and the main winner will walk away with $2000.

"This year we are also celebrating our 10th year anniversary and we are looking forward to the games.

"It will be a great day of fun, networking and team bonding."

Vereivalu said organisers were confident all participating teams would enjoy the tournament.

WAF is the defending champion in the men's division while Lautoka Medics is the reigning female champions.

The first round of pool games kick-off at 7am.
