THE Likuliku Resort volleyball team is aiming for the top award in this weekend's ANZ Nadi International Airport Stakeholders volleyball tournament.

Team captain Timoci Maiwai said the resort was represented by two teams for the event.

He said the men's team reached the quarter-final last year and he was optimistic of a better finish this year.

"Like all other teams our aim is to grab the title in the men's division," said Maiwai.

"We have been training for the last two months back in the island and we are confident of a good outing.

"The players are looking forward to the games and to stamp our mark in the competition.

"We are also confident that our mixed team will be the team to watch on Saturday."

Maiwai said the side would not underestimate any team in their pool games because all teams had prepared well.

He said one of the big games in their pool would be against Naviti Resort.

"We have some good and tough teams in our pool and we are looking at Naviti as the team to beat," said Maiwai.

"We will take each game as they come and we respect all teams."

The side is pooled with Naviti, ANZ, Lyndhurst, Hilton, Tropics, TFL Suva and Gasman.

Maiwai also praised the tournament organisers for the well-organised event.

"The tournament is growing each year and I thank the organisers for bringing various organisations to unite for a common goal at this tournament," he said.

"The tournament is well organised with many attractive prizes and we are looking forward to the games," he added.

All games will be held at the Prince Charles Park starting at 7am.
