Al Ahly defeated Kenya Prisons 3-1 on Friday in their first match at the Women’s Volleyball African Club Championship.

The first set was an easy ride for the Egyptian side as they claimed a 25-14 win. Prisons improved in the second set but Al Ahly still had the upper hand as they won 25-21, making it 2-0.

The Kenyan side then pulled one back, winning the third set at 18-25, before Al Ahly secured the victory with a comfortable 25-16 win in the fourth set.

Al Ahly, who were recently crowned Egypt Cup champions, were drawn in Pool B alongside Zimbabwe’s University, Marsa of Tunisia, Algeria’s Bejaia and Kenya Prisons. Marsa claimed an easy 3-0 victory over Bejaia in the other Group B match of the day.

Defending champions Al Ahly will play against University of Zimbabwe in their second game on Saturday. They will then face Marsa on April 10, and Bejaia on the 11th.

Egypt’s other representative El-Shams, who were drawn in Group D, claimed an easy 3-0 victory (25-9, 25-7, 25-12) over FAP of Cameroon. They will face ARSU from Seychelles on Saturday.

In March, Al Ahly men’s volleyball team won a record-extending 12th African Volleyball Club Champions Championship title after beating Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel 3-1 in the final.
