About KVF

The sport of volleyball, which is in Kenya run under the auspices of the Kenya Volleyball Federation, was introduced in the country in the early 1962.
The Federation was registered with the Federation of International Volleyball (FIVB) in 1964.

The sport is played in almost all learning institutions (schools, and colleges, etc) and at club as well as national levels.
 Several organizations like the banks (Inter-banks), Kenya Communication Sports Organisation (KECOSO), Hotels and Tourist Sports Organisation (HOTOSO),
 Kenya Inter-county Sports Association (KICSA), Water Services Sports Associations (WASCA) among others also include volleyball in their sports competitions.

 Kenyan volleyball teams have performed well in regional and continental competitions at both club and national levels.
 Women volleyball teams from Kenya have especially performed well since they first appeared into the limelight in 1987 during the All Africa Games held in Nairobi.
 At the Games, the Kenya National Team emerged from obscurity to clinch the Games’ silver medal and has never looked back. The Team has subsequently won several African titles and represented Africa at the World Cup, the World Championships, World Grand Prix and the Olympics.
Four Kenyan Women’s Volleyball clubs, namely Kenya Commercial Bank, Kenya Pipeline Company, Kenya Prisons and the defunct Telkom have between them had
a good run of winning the prestigious African Cup of Club Championships the most times.

Kenyan Men’s volleyball teams have started performing well at international level, especially after the National team’s impressive run at the 2011 All Africa Games
in Maputo, Mozambique during which it emerged third.
Two Kenyan Men’s teams: GSU and Kenya Prisons have also been performing well in the Africa Cup of Club Championship in recent years. The quite encouraging results have shown that Kenya could perform well in the men’s category of the sport as well.

Locally, volleyball is a popular sport in Kenya, which attracts many spectators and lot of media attention during local and international competitions.
 For example, spectators fill up the Moi International Sports Centre competition hall international competitions held in Kenya and the National League
matches also played at Kasarani and Africa Nazarene University attracted sizeable crowds and were covered widely in the mass media.
