Vision Volleyball Camp (VVC) coach Hannington Nsubuga has hinted that playing against Genocide Memorial tournament defending champions Kenya Pipeline will expose his side positively.
Nsubuga was speaking before his team’s departure on Thursday, for Kigali Rwanda ahead of the tournament that starts on Saturday. “Kenya Pipelines is definitely one of the giants they played in several international tournaments on the continent and beyond,” Nsubuga said.
“We really want to play them, not necessary to win but to get that exposure,” he added. Kenya Pipeline have also won the Africa Club Championship for the women a record seven times. Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA) were losing finalists last year while APR beat Ndejje Elites to the bronze. “We can’t rule out the local teams like APR and RRA, it will be good to play them and see how we fare,” Nsubuga said.
VVC will be playing in their maiden international tournament and while other teams are going to ‘win it’ VVC will be looking for exposure. “Mainly our target is to expose our young players but we also look at getting out of the group stages are a minimum target, and we can do this,” added Nsubuga. Nemostars, KAVC and Sport-S will be the other women’s teams from Uganda Kenya Pipeline are the women defending champions.
