The annual Republic of Fiji Military Forces Wives and Mothers Tournament started in Lautoka yesterday.

The two-day competition involved 350 participants from around the country.

The Commander’s Cup is up for grabs in the netball competition with Engineers Wives the defending champion.

Lautoka will defend the volleyball competition.

Club president Salote Tavainavesi was happy with turnout.

“Over the last four years, this annual tournament was held in Suva and we were just daring to come out to the West.

“I am just overwhelmed and the timing for this event is really good for us.

“We like it here in Lautoka as we are enjoying the sunshine, the warmth and the hospitality of the sugar city.

“There is a trophy for the most disciplined team and also a prize for the best dressed team.

The event was officially opened by the Acting Commander of the RFMF, Commodore Viliame Naupoto.

The finals will be played today.
