Two new teams have been included to compete in the 2018 National Netball Championship to be played in Lautoka this weekend.
These are Ba and Wai (Nadroga West) and also the lone district from the Northern division, Wainikeli.
While launching the tournament today, Netball Fiji vice president Vivian Koster says they are overwhelmed with the interest shown by netballers in the Western Division.
“We’re excited to see the West coming in full force in the sense that Ba has established themselves and so has Nadi and we see a lot of competition coming out from the West.”
Koster says they are hoping the championship will create a platform for our local netballers and event to impress selectors to get a place in the Fiji training squad for the 2019 Netball World Cup and the 2021 Netball World Youth Cup.
Thirty-eight teams from twelve districts will compete in the Championship which starts tomorrow and ends Saturday at the multi-purpose courts in Lautoka.
