“This is more of pilot then we will integrate it to National level once we have proper infrastructures”Nobert Sije, MCHA Match and Fixtures Secretary
Hockey missed out on being part of the National Beach Hockey Games and the African beach Hockey games that were recently held in Tunisia.
However, MCHA are looking forward to be a part of the team in the next round of National and International Beach disciplines. Internationally, the World Beach Hockey Federation is at its inception stage and we believe Africa and Kenya will have representation at the right time.
