The organisers of the 2022 Rexona Business House Mixed Volleyball League believe the sport must be encouraged in every part of the country as it not only promotes healthy living but also provides a great platform for gender equality.

“Since volleyball is a non-contact sport, it paves the way for mixed teams to be part of both organised and leisure competitions irrespective of gender, age and physical appearance, ” said Alan Kumar of Bula Events Group.

Speaking on the sidelines of the third round of pool games of the 2022 Rexona Business House Mixed Volleyball League at the National Netball Centre in Suva, Kumar also commended the latest government initiative for taking Volleyball to greater heights at community and grassroots levels.

“It is encouraging to note that the students of Ratu Rusiate Nabuta Memorial Primary School along with the village youths in Nailaga, Ba will soon have access to a brand new Volleyball court worth $48, 000,” Kumar said.

“This latest initiative by the Fijian Government is a step in the right direction and we commend the Minister for Youth and Sports, Parveen Bala for making the provision for three such Volleyball courts in their new financial year.”

Meanwhile, 45 exciting games were played during the third round of pool games on Wednesday evening as the competition intensified in anticipation of the elimination rounds that shall start after round five of pool games.

“We can see some teams as tournament favourites but it’s too early to predict anything yet,” Kumar said.

“We are still getting requests from businesses to register their teams but it’s too late and that shows the standard of games Bula Events Group has brought into Volleyball by lifting the competition to another level and that is a milestone achievement for us.

“We would like to thank all the companies and their management for allowing their staff members to compete as a unit to stay fit and healthy while effectively contributing towards our goal of eliminating NCDs from the country.”

The fourth round of the pool games will continue at the same venue on Wednesday next week
