In a bid to plan for its busy 2018 calendar, the Kenya Volleyball Federation’s National Executive Committee is set to hold a crunch meeting on Saturday at the Nyayo National Stadium to lay strategy.

Among the top items to be discussed are the federation’s elections slated for April, the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Cup set for September in Japan, and the CAVB African Club Championships to be held in Egypt in March.

In an interview with Citizen Digital, Kenya Volleyball Federation boss Waithaka Kioni said: “Our NEC officials will hold a meeting on Saturday in order to plan for the busy year calendar since this is a very crucial year with a lot of competitions.”

It is widely anticipated that Kioni who doubles up as the second vice-president of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya will contest for a fifth term.

Meanwhile, the Confederation of African Volleyball has revised the women’s club championship which was set for March 5-16. The competition will now take place from March 4-15 in Cairo, Egypt.

The change has however not affected the men dates.The top-four teams in the respective leagues will participate in the championship.

Champions Pipeline, Prisons, KCB, and Bombers are expected to represent Kenya in the women category while GSU, Prisons, KPA and Cooperative are set to fight it out in the men category.
