All the teams have been camping out at the playing venue, which has two full-sized fields allowing male and female matches to be played simultaneously. During the day, it’s a colourful atmosphere where supporters of the teams line the fields to support.
There are also a few stands; some double-sided adoring the parameters of the two fields to accommodate spectators, some even settled to tie up their hammocks under trees around the venue to soak up the all-day action while others would have built make shift tents.
On the field of play, there is no letting up in terms of intensity by either of the teams in action, a wonderful and satisfying sight to behold by these players, some walking hours, some one, two and three days to Kamana and at the end, will do so once again to get back to their respective villages.
