Netball challenge

FIJI Pearls coach Vicki Wilson said with five months left from the Commonwealth Games the challenge was getting tougher.

Wilson said the Pearls would be focusing on strength and conditioning block for the next eight weeks.

"With five sessions a week, trainer Makelesi Batimala is pushing the girls to increase the aerobic endurance," she said.

"The Netball Super League games allow the players to maintain their court fitness and ball skills.

"The entire Pearls squad realise that every time they hit the court they want to improve on the last performance and keep building on their playing strengths.

"The European tour and the South African series exposed seventeen plays to international Test matches and training games.

"Everyone realises we have a big challenge ahead of us, but I am confident that all the players are working hard to be at their best by the time we compete at the Commonwealth Games in Australia."

The International Netball Festival will be held at Lautoka's multipurpose courts from Saturday the December 2 to Tuesday December, 5, 2017.

Umpires outside Lautoka will need to sort their own accommodation during this tournament.

All interested umpires are requested to e-mail Jona Saturu on or call on 8359438 or Moape Vu on 9184050 on their availability.
