Nairobi, Kenya, October 21, 2012- The top clubs in Kenya will meet in the Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) National league play-offs November 16-18 at Nyayo National Stadium.

“We changed the initial start date of November 5 to give teams more time to prepare,” said national secretary Evans Wasike. “We’ve tentatively settled on Nyayo National Stadium as the playoffs venue because Moi International Sports Centre will not be available during the duration of our event,” he explained.
