Playing For A Cause
Serbia's Novak Djokovic celebrates winning his second round match of the French Open tennis tournament against Lithuania's Ricardas Berankis at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, France, Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020.

The Wakanisila volleyball team has been involved in community work rather than just playing in club games very Saturday.

And they hope to secure a sponsor to lift their profile.

Team official Maria Daulakeba shared how the team had offered a productive outlet for the players.

“We started this youth group at the start of the year and most of our members are unemployed,”Daulakeba  said.

“This has also been a good opportunity for the young women to be involved in something productive.

“We’ve even teamed up with the Tuirara Community Police Post to work together on crime prevention.

“The team has done very well competing in the weekly competition and it all paid off after winning the Tuirara Volleyball Association competition over the weekend.

“Our youngest player, Kalabu Secondary School Year 13 student Penina Brown was also named best player.

“We’re very fortunate to also have the support of former Flying Fijians flyhalf Seremaia Bai, who donated the trophy that we won last weekend.

“And People’s Democratic Party president Lynda Tabuya for providing the uniforms we wore for the final. We would be most grateful to get more sponsors.”

Captained by Alitiana Naibose, the team consisted of Taufa Sukulu, Usumaki Tavura, Diana Likuwaqatabu, Leni Kanikeresi, Sainiana Tuiketei, Camari Dalau, Anaseini Lupe and Penina Brown.
