Volleyball teams in Kuresoi get donations

28 August 2013, 17:54 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - In a bid to boost cohesion and nurturing of sporting talent in Kuresoi region of Nakuru County formerly known for its inter-community conflicts, a well-wisher hailing from Kuresoi North constituency Joel Ayieni has donated two balls and two nets to each of 16 teams worth KES 150,000.

The teams; Nyota, Kuresoi, Kamara and Kiptororo drawn from four county assembly wards in Kuresoi North constituency received a major boost ahead of a volleyball tournament that will kick off in September this year.

Speaking to The People Sports Fanatique after he handed over the facilities to the teams that had gathered for friendly matches in Seguton trading centre, Ayieni said the move is geared towards keeping the youth united through volleyball in the region.

“There is need to consider the fact that sports has been discovered to play a greater role in peace building and bringing together communities regardless of their tribal inclination. It is in this regard that I took the decision to invest in the youth sporting talent by providing them with facilities”, said Ayieni, a local leader from Kuresoi north constituency.

Years back, there used to exist a strong team volley ball team named Keringet and had participated in the national league, but it failed to get a sponsor and the players parted ways.

Kuresoi area is proud of housing a school that has participated in volleyball, Boron secondary school.

Ayieni stressed the need for the sporting activity to be supported by various stakeholders and that he will be in charge of the planned September 2013 tournament in the constituency.

In the friendly matches, Muchorwe volleyball team was not lucky in the hands of Seguton team losing 3-0(25-17, 25-21 and 25-19) while Kaplelach gave Gachie no breathing space with vicious attacks winning straight sets of 25-8, 25-13 and 25-9.

Seguton,Kaplelach,Muchorwe,Karirikania,Gachie,Nyota,Langwenda,Matunda,Chemaner,Kamara  and Masaita are the volleyball teams with three football teams also receiving five soccer balls.
