Corporate touch rugby tourney targeted fitness and socialising

Update: 12:54PM THE touch rugby business house tournament concludes this afternoon at the Sacred Heart College grounds in Suva.

Touch Federation of Fiji (TFF) vice president and tournament organiser Charles Cleary said this was a Get FIT! Get Social! campaign, and most importantly one to raise funds for the national touch team for the 2019 Pacific Games. 

"The whole idea of the Business house tournament was to get people fit, get them socialising and also get them out of the office since most business houses are very keen on wellness," Cleary said. 

"The other idea was to also help raise funds for our national reps that will be competing at the Pacific Games in Apia, Samoa next year."

The week-long tournament kicked off last Monday at Albert Park in Suva, and 14 business teams from Suva are part of the tournament. 

The finals will be held this afternoon and other tournaments are also planned for later this year. 

The 14 business houses that took part were: Reserve Bank of Fiji (RBF), Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF), Bank South Pacific (BSP), United Nations (UN), Fiji Electricity Authority (FEA), Swire Shipping Company, Pernix, Fijian Holdings Ltd (FHL), Telecom Fiji Limited (TFL), Navy, AAPi Designs, Fiji Revenue & Customs Service (FRCS), Coca-Cola Amatil Fiji (CCA), and Combined Insurance.
