KAMPALA - Players will have enough time to rest and recuperate when the 22 edition of the NSSF KAVC International tournament starts from August 3-5 in Kampala.

“We have changed the competition to three days because we believe that the extra day gives the players enough time to recuperate without giving the body a lot of stress,” Local organising committee chair Peter Buyungo said.

This edition of the event will help local players and team get the recognition they need but at the same time, the players will have an opportunity to learn from teams coming from other countries.

Teams from Rwanda, Kenya and Burundi are expected to come for the competition. Kenya and Rwanda especially are one of the region’s most successful sides in the sport so the fact that teams from the two countries will come for the tournament is a bonus.

The defending champions for the men and women are APR VC and RRA respectively both from Rwanda.

 Joining the foreign teams will be a group 9 local woman and men’s clubs also competing for the top prizes on the day.

This year's organisers have promised a sitting volleyball team. They will have a proper competition as opposed to previous years where they only played exhibition matches.

The sponsorship package from the main sponsors NSSF will be announced on July 24 and it’s expected to be better than the package from last season. Other sponsors of the event are Pepsi, Case Medical Centre Pallisa Agro-Processors and SMS one among others.
