UoN students to represent Kenya in the roll ball world cup
UoN students, Amito Kevin Ouma and George Mbutu Mutie will represent Kenya in the roll ball world cup.
Two students from the University of Nairobi have made the cut to be part of the team that will represent Kenya in the 4th Roll Ball World Cup 2017.
They are part of a seven (7) member team that will travel to Dhaka, Bangladesh for this event.
Amito Kevin Ouma and George Mbutu Mutie who are students from the College of Biological and Physical Sciences (CBPS), have been part of the UoN roll ball team that has been participating in the local league.
Roll Ball is a relatively new game in Kenya and is played between two teams of 12 players. Out of 12, only 6 players are allowed to play on court at a time. This game is played on skates. The ball can be held in single hand or both hands, even during passing. A player must dribble the ball while carrying it. Players of both teams have to goal and the team who is able to goal more than the opponent team wins.
All the best to the Kenya Team and our two bright stars!
