Government and sports officials in Tonga have agreed to limit the number of athletes they’ll be sending to the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu next month, in order to get best value out of limited funds.

The recommendation to restrict the size of the Tongan team bound for Port Vila was put to a high level meeting by the General Manager of the Tongan Netball Association, Salote Sisifa, reports Pacific Beat.

According to Salote Sisifa, the government shares her view that it’s time for team selection to be based on quality, not quantity.
