Kenya Handball Federation (KHF) league resumes this weekend after a two-month break with the women's teams in action on the opening weekend. 

With a majority of the team's through to the second leg for the women's league and most of the men's team having played more than half of their games, the league is projected to conclude in mid March. 

"We are looking at running the 2022/23 league to conclude in March. There will be a brief break before the new season starts, tentatively in May," explained lead referee who is also in charge of fixtures George Asimeto. 

He continued, "There are several international assignments this year and we would like to have the teams in action as it helps prepare the players. Additionally, starting the league in May will ensure that we have time to conclude the season this year even with the expected breaks due to national team duty." 

This weekend, Daystar University Falcons have a busy two days as the league as they play four matches. 

On the opening day, 4 February, Falcons play Net Navigators from 9am and Nairobi City Council (NCC) at 3pm before facing off with Amazon and Ulinzi Sharks on 5 Sunday February. 

The varsity side is yet to collect any points after nine matches but coach Martin Kamau is keen to lead the league debutants to their first victory on the weekend. 

Leaders Nairobi Water Queens and National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) have been exempted from this weekend's action, having played more matches than the rest of the teams.
