The Ba Men and Mixed Netball Association received a major boost ahead of the Western Rally which will be held at the Ba Market grounds this Saturday.

Ba businessman Mahendra Bili­moria donated a new set of uni­forms to the four Ba teams that will be competing and also provided shields and trophies for the one day tourney.

Association secretary Fuakilau Tuapati acknowledged Bilimoria for his support.

“We want to thank Bilimoria for providing new uniforms, shields and trophies.

“He has been sponsoring other sports in Ba like rugby and foot­ball,” Tuapati said.

Bilimoria was grateful to help.

“We hope the donation will boost the performance of our netball teams,” he said.

“It has been a while since we have a major netball event in Ba.”

Ba Netball will host the Western Rally after an eight-year lapse.

Bilimoria has been a keen sports follower and has been supporting football, rugby and cricket as well.

During the recent Inkk Mobile Bat­tle of the Giants he had been sup­porting some Ba football players.

“Also last year he also sponsored the rugby competition in Ba.

He said this is his contribution to the community in trying to promote healthy living as well.
