Volleyball: a game for two teams, usually of six players, in which a large ball is hit by hand over a high net, the aim being to score points by making the ball reach the ground on the opponent’s side of the court. Our foundation runs a Volleyball Team and works to find international spots for our players.

Netball: a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Games are played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end. The object is to score goals from within a defined area by throwing a ball into a ring attached to a 3.05 meters (10 feet) high post. We work to champion the advancement and commercialization of Netball in Tanzania.

Handball: a game played between two teams of 7 or 11 players who try to throw or hit an inflated ball into a goal at either end of a rectangular playing area while preventing their opponents from doing so. We aim to improve the popularity and business sense of the game in Tanzania.
