THE national under 21 team has secured three more build up matches aimed at putting them in good shape ahead of the Junior World Championships which gets underway on August 22 in the Turkish cities of Ankara and Izmir. The championships will fold on  September 1.

Head coach Paul Bitok confirmed the development, saying that the national team will play against ARKAS volleyball club, IBB Volleyball club and Izmir volleyball club.

“We still  have to play three international warm up matches. I hope they raise the level of our players before the competition starts,” added Bitok.

Over the weekend, Bitok’s team beat the Turkish side, Fenerbahce Volleyball Club easily 25-18, 25-22, and 25-23. The two teams were scheduled to meet again yesterday for a second warm-up match in Istanbul.

The Under-21 begin their quest against United States of America on August 22, before taking on Tunisia on August 23, and then Canada on August 24 as well as Serbia on August 26, all drawn in Pool C.
