FOUR OYDC BEACH VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS SET FOR REGION 6 LEG IV GAMES

OYDC Beach volleyball coach Isaac Tembo has named the players’ Grace Manyele, Grace Daka, Joshua Tembo and Brighton Mwenya.
Tembo says the selection of his players to the national teams shows how much OYDC Zambia is helping sports associations in the country to nurture young talented athletes through the weekend league games such as the Teulings Youth Sports Challenge.
The games will run from 17 to 22 August 2022 at Siavonga Sandy Beach and will involve all the countries in Southern Africa.

Since its construction, a number of athletes have utilized the facility and subsequently got selected to be playing for different local clubs and national teams.
