RWANDA’s women league champions APR yesterday flew out to Mauritius to take part in the Africa Women Club Championship which starts today at Panditahadeo Hall.
The military side left aboard Kenya Airways and Coach Sammy Mulinge was reluctant to promise much insisting that the team was after a decent performance.
“The team has prepared fairly well for the tournament and I now hope they can reap what they have been sowing on court,” the Kenyan coach said.

The winner will go on to represent Africa at the FIVB World Club Championships set for December in Qatar.
