NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 15 – The Sliders Hockey team got a major boost on Tuesday after receiving kits and equipment from international betting firm Betway Kenya.
The event saw the Sliders Hockey Team receive kits including Jerseys, Hockey Sticks, Hockey balls and goalkeeper kits.
Present at the handover ceremony was Nancy Kibogong, the Sliders Team administrator, Anne Onyango Sliders Team Manager and Sliders team members.
“We are glad to have an international brand such as Betway come in and support us with kits and hockey equipment. This will help boost the morale of the team as women’s sport in Kenya does not receive as much support as our male counterparts.

“As a brand we remain committed to promoting women’s sport in the country and thus are very pleased to offer our support to the Sliders Team.
