Cakaudrove will host the 2018 Lewasewa Fijian Primary Schools Netball Championship.

This was after officials called off the annual event on Wednesday due to the unplayable condition at the Suva Grammar School netball courts due to the wet weather.

Tournament coordinator Jona Saturu confirmed this was decided during the annual general meeting and approval by the Ministry of Education.

“We are taking the championship outside Suva because it has been two years now that Suva has been hosting it,” Saturu said.

“Cakaudrove and Lautoka wanted to host the games next year.

“Fiji Primary Schools Netball needs to take the games all around the country.

“Cakaudrove won the bid to host the 2018 games.

“The unfavourable weather condition killed the momentum of the players to perform and showcase their talents.

“The districts spent around $15,000 to get their teams over for the competition and it was very disappointing for all involved.”
