The focus now shifts to preparing for the upcoming under 15 and under 19 tennis tournaments at Rift Valley Academy later this term. “The teams are in high spirits, we have been training hard and we get better with every competition we participate in. Most importantly, the students are having fun while at it”, said Mr. Ochieng
