Defending Sangam Convention netball champions Ba are determined to retain the title for the third consecutive time.

Sponsored by Lovely Engineering, the Ba netball side dressed up in their bula attire were at the official opening of the convention at Subrail Park in Labasa yesterday.

Ba netball coach Sikeli Leweni said they are not expecting a tough competition since there are two pool games from the nine local teams since there are no overseas teams.

“My 12-member team are made up of ten married women and two young girls but they are fully prepared to retain the title,” Leweni said.

“Even though we are faced with a lot of challenges back home like the wet weather conditions with no proper facilities, but we are still optimistic of a good outing. We are excited to be part of this convention.”

Leweni said from the past years they have played and beaten teams like Varoko, Melbourne and Middlemore in the finals. While memories are still fresh at the back of our minds we know what to do,” he said.

Today Ba take on arch rivals Nadrala at 8.30am and the finals are expected to be played later in the afternoon.
