Kampala- Hannington Nsubuga, the Vision Volleyball Camp (VVC) coach, believes his newly founded club can win silverware in 2015.
But his players are thinking else. Started late last year as a breakaway from KAVC, VVC play their first ever tournament today at the 42nd edition of Makerere Open.
“Our target is to leave Makerere with the trophy,” said VVC captain Viola ‘Shosho’ Akisa.
“We want to show other clubs that we have not been sleeping in Namboole but actually training hard. We started training early (last November) and now want to earn some respect from everyone.”
Shosho won’t have Josephine Nammanda, Irene Adeke and Milly Laker in her ranks as they are with the Lady Volleyball Cranes in Nairobi for World Championship Qualifier. “We would have loved them to be part of our history but we will still give our best in their absence,” added Shosho, also a former Nkumba setter.
Women defending champions Nkumba and favourites Ndejje are also depleted with four and three players on the national ladies team respectively.
