Sports World, yesterday opened their store at the Rups Big Bear Complex in Nakasi, their seventh.

The store was packed yesterday with customers who wanted to be the first in the shop.

Courts Fiji Ltd director of marketing Anil Senewiratne said the company felt  there was a need to open the new branch because Courts had also opened its outlet in the complex.

In addition, the small Sports World section was not enough to cater for the population of Nakasi.

“There was a big demand to have our full range brought to Nakasi by the people of Nakasi. So we decided to get a separate shop to give the same benefits that we are giving in other separate Sports World shops across the country,” said Mr Senewiratne.

There is a Sports World section in every Courts branch.

There are 18 Courts branches with 11 which have Sports World sections. However,  there are now 7 separate Sports World branches.

The store will have items ranging from sporting equipment to shoes and other necessities needed for every sports person.

Sports World had also launched their theme: ‘Empowering Fiji Sports’.

“We will carry that banner and ensure that we have  better sports facility because this is a country where there are a lot of sports involved,” said Mr Senewiratne.

Vision Investments Limited acquired Sports World in 2012 and offers world-renowned sports brands.

Sports World general manager Vinod Kumar said $300, 000 was invested in the new branch which will be tailor-made to suit the needs of their Nakasi customers.

Asinate Kasowaqa 19, from Adi Cakobau School was the chief guest at  the opening.

After winning three gold medals at the Coca-Cola Games this year, Ms Kasowaqa wants to use her success to encourage everyone to participate in sports.

“Sports is not a distraction but rather a tool that can train a person about self-discipline and time management,” she said.
