Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) are among the teams that are holding their breath in anticipation that some of their key players will be ready for action when the national volleyball play offs serve off in Mombasa tomorrow.

Several teams have been battling to handle the fitness of their key players after the conclusion of the regular national league.

And while some teams say the injries are manageable, others are waiting on late fitness tests for their players.   

DCI is one of the causalities with coach Daniel Bor bemoaning right attacker Maureen Wekesa’s injury set back that has ruled her out of the three-day competition at Makande Indoor Gymnasium.

“Wekesa is down with a knee injury and she will not be ready to play at the start of the competition,” said Bor.

Wekesa has been one of the pillars in the team during the league season that culminated a fortnight ago. However, Bor believes the rest of the team members are ready for action.

KPA men side is not sure if Peter Kihara will be available for the playoffs.

KCB will alsoi miss the services of instrumental attacker Violet Makuto due to injury.
