Vision Volleyball Camp (VVC) will be aiming to win yet another title when the second edition of the Joan Cox Memorial serves off at Gayaza High School today.

VVC rewrote history when they won the 42nd edition of the Makerere Open last weekend on their tournament debut. “We came focused with an aim of lifting the Makerere title, and we did,” said VVC’s Peace Busingye. “It is that kind of attitude that we are going to carry along with us to Gayaza. All the hard work we have put in training has been transferred into hunger for success.”

In Makerere, VVC dropped only one set against fellow newcomers Espoir before defeating Ndejje 3-0 in the final.

The Namboole-based side has been putting a lot of emphasis on their middle attackers and blockers as they already boast of superior service and reception departments. “A good reception will give us an edge on attack, we also want our middle players to defend but at the same time be able to attack,” said VVC coach Hannington Nsubuga.

KAVC are the defending champions of this all ladies championship while Trust High School of Mukono, who won the schools category last year, still have the bragging rights and will still be the team to beat.
