The Fiji Primary School Netball Association is proud to have two new districts, Koro and Gau join the Kaji Netball competition this year.
Association president, Susana Liga says the Lau district had also shown interest in joining the 3-day tournament this year, but pulled out at the last minute due to financial difficulties.
Liga says plans are underway to involve as many districts as possible to build a solid foundation upon which to develop the sport for young players.
A tour to Australia is also in the pipeline next year, with 30 players to be selected from the under 11 and 12 grades at the end of the tournament tomorrow.
Meanwhile in results so far today at the National Netball Centre in Suva, Northland beat Suva Gold 5-4 in the under 13 grade.
In the under 11 grade, Lautoka One beat Tailevu South 14-8, Bua defeated Nadi Two 5-4, Suva Sapphire overpowered Serua 8-1 and Suva Gold lost to Nasinu 9-5.
