Kenya is one of the leading countries in Women's Volleyball in Africa. The senior team has participated in several global competitions, including the Olympics, World Cup and World Championships, while the junior team has taken part in the World Championships.

A dark horse in Mexico and with nothing to lose, the Kenyan team will use the competition to gain valuable experience and international exposure. It might spring a few surprises if it can find its rhythm.
