Last week the Samoa Touch Rugby Incorporated (S.T.R.I.) wrapped up its Business House Championship 2018 tournament after 8 competitive weeks of games. This tournament included 24 teams competing for the title (a total of 35 Government agencies and local businesses participating).
After an exhilarating Cup final that went down to a drop off, ACE/Samoa Builders Supplies overcame a strong AG/EPC team to take out the Business House Championship for 2018. Results from other finals saw Lesa ma Penn/Isitolo Leota Chartered Accountants winning the Plate division, CSL/SLAC winning the Bowl division and Samoa Stationery and Books take out the Spoon division.
This tournament aimed to encourage participation from the private and public sector by providing a platform for team building outside of the workplace, as the tournament only allows employees to participate.
The level of sportsmanship and team work from all teams and supporters was very refreshing and provided spectators exciting games to watch throughout the tournament.
The next Business House Championship Tournament will be held later this year in October-November and we anticipate that it will be just as competitive as the recent tournament.
Following the success of the Business House Championship Tournament, S.T.R.I. will be hosting the Independence Touch Tournament (Social Grade only) on the 2nd June 2018 as part of Samoa’s Independence celebrations.
This family event will be open to all social teams willing to participate, with food stalls and bouncing castles for the kids. For more information please contact S.T.R.I. – firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Samoa Touch Rugby Inc. will like to acknowledge Br. Iulio, Principal Susitina Maletino Levao and Asolelei Tolovae of St Joseph’s College for their support and hosting our tournament at the SJC grounds at Alafua. We also thank all the teams who participated as well as the team managers and supporters for making this tournament enjoyable and a success.
