Where Are They Now?

Valerie Buadromo-Finau

Valerie returned to the hockey scene in 2000 after retiring from hockey for about 7years to start a family and career.

She crossed paths with Blanche Beg (HACKERS Founding President) at USP in 2000 when HACKERS was formed.

She and Blanche played hockey together for Marist, Blanche influenced Valerie return to hockey playing for HACKERS.

And in Val's words...."I dont ever regret that day because now my kids both play hockey as a 2nd sport to Tennis and I have been with the sport ever since.

Some of my fond memories of the club;
- Bonding times - (Walk from Rabuka Gym around Nasese area. The gals taking turns to 'vava' (piggyback) my daughter Mona (now 16yrs old)
- Meetings @ the late Debbie Lavulo's home
- Playing at the Victoria Courts
- Karaoke nights - showing off our talents off the field :)

Valerie now lives in Lautoka but still is very active on the hockey scene and was elected earlier this year as the Secretary for Fiji Hockey.

She also remains in regular contact with members of the original HACKERS teammore
