WAI Volleyball Association under the Water Authority of Fiji is out to expose young talents as they hosted their Easter volleyball tournament yesterday.

Manager Temo Tuinaceva said since Fiji Volleyball Federation cancelled the annual Easter tournament, they decided to host a mini tournament to keep the vibe on.

“We’ve seen our youth play and the Easter volleyball tournament is one of the major tournaments in Fiji and when it was called off, it affected the team spirit because everybody was looking forward to it,” Tuinaceva said.

“We didn’t want their talent to go to waste since they have been preparing for the past weeks so we decided to host a mini tournament to help our youth.”

Tuinaceva said this was a good platform for the defending champions, WAF women’s team, to test their ability and also compete with tough teams such as the Army.

“We have Raiwaqa and Kinoya teams who have been a boost to this competition and to have 14 men’s team and 12 women’s team is a great achievement for us — we can host another tournament.”
