Kenya To Host Beach Volleyball Qualifiers For Paris Olympics, African Games


Kenya will host the Zone 5 beach volleyball qualifiers for next year’s Olympic Games in Paris and the African Games in Accra Ghana on December 20-23.

In a letter, Confederation of African Volleyball (CAVB) president Fernand Ruterana said the decision was reached unanimously during the recent Zonal Club Championships in Kigali, Rwanda.

He added that each country will be afforded a men and women’s team comprising two players each.

“Every federation will present not more than two couples in women and men respectively and will be accompanied by not more than one head of delegation, one coach, one physio, and one international referee,” Ruterana said.

The last edition of these qualifiers were held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in 2020 where Kenya and Rwanda women’s team qualified to the next stage.

The Kenyan team qualified for the Tokyo Games in 2021 after defeating Nigeria 2-1 at the Africa Continental Cup in Agadir, Morocco.
