Ulinzi ready for battle as Kenya Handball Super Cup gets underway
The Super Cup had initially been scheduled to start on 13 May but was moved forward by a week to give teams more time to prepare.
Nixon Oyaro’s Ulinzi HC are out to reclaim the Kenya Handball Federation (KHF) pre-season tournament, Super Cup, set to throw off on 20 May at Nyayo handball court.
The event had initially been scheduled to start on 13 May but was moved forward by a week to give teams more time to prepare.
Oyaro’s charges have their work cut out as they begin their quest for silverware in pool B against Kenyatta University.
“We have been in training for the last one month and I am confident the squad is ready for action. We have worked on a few areas that saw us miss out on the league title. We have our game plan set. We polish on that ahead of the weekend,” Oyaro said.
Up against Strathmore University and Kenyatta, the military side has to finish in the top two for a chance to proceed to the semis. Pool A has holders National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB), General Service Unit (GSU) and Black Mamba.
The women’s competition will see holders Nairobi Water Queens take on Ulinzi Sharks, NCPB Ladies and Rangers in a round-robin format of play.
