Kenyan champions KPA off to Rwanda for pre-season
The 2021-2022 Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) women's Premier League champions Kenya Ports Authority ladies team has left the country for Kigali, Rwanda for pre-season training for a period of two weeks.
Coach Anthony Ojukwu has confirmed they set off on their journey early this morning and will be passing through Kampala, Uganda and finally Rwanda.
They travelled with a squad of 15 players including two newcomers Belinda Okoth who signed from Equity Hawks and Jemmimah Omondi (Storms).
“We are going to play at least three friendly matches with top Rwanda teams in an effort to work on our chemistry with the new players. It's a two week training camp in which we hope it will get us ready to have a formidable season locally and internationally,” Ojukwu said.
While in Rwanda KPA will play against APR Ladies, Hoop Ladies and Rwanda Energy Group (REG) women basketball team on dates yet to be confirmed. All the games will be played at the Amahoro indoor court.
KPA took home their 15th league title by dethroning Equity Hawks 3-1 in the best-of-five series finals during the month of February 2022 ending a five-year drought after previously being crowned champions in 2018 after beating Equity 3-1 in the finals.
It was a record-breaking season for the Dockers who lost only two matches on their way to reclaim the title and will now represent Kenya in the Zonal club championship games and the Africa Club championships backed by a strong squad consisting of experienced players including KPA captain Velma Achieng, Hilda Indasi, Medina Okot, Natalie Akinyi and Selina Okumu.
