Vision Volleyball Camp (VVC) will have another bite of the cherry when they play at the Africa Clubs Championship next year.

Hannington Nsubuga’s charges defeated Nkumba ladies 3-1 in the final of the National Club Championship held at Uganda Christian University over the weekend and have now booked one of the two tickets available for Ugandan ladies’ teams.

VVC started the final as the better side and took the first set 25-20 before Nkumba regrouped to snatch the second 25-16.

The 2014 national league winners then ignited. New signing Margaret Namyalo started biting in a attack while Irene Adeke ensured there were no balls dropping through the middle.

VVC took the third set and were in no moods to play a decisive set. They won the fourth set to confirm that they will represent Uganda at the continental showpiece set for next year in a country yet to be decided.

The Namboole outfit cruised throughout the tournament and defeated giants Ndejje Elites and Sport-S ladies 3-0 in the quarters and semis respectively en-route to the final.

UCU Lady Doves defeated Sport-S to finish third at the championship.

It is the third time VVC is winning the national clubs championship having won it earlier in 2014 and 2015.

The club didn’t travel for the African championship in 2016 but Nsubuga has already revealed that the team will travel for the next championship.

VVC finished 7th when they played at the championship that was hosted in Cairo, Egypt in 2015.

The other Ugandan representative will be determined at the end of the national league season with the winner taking the remaining ticket.
