Tunis, Tunisia, July 16, 2015- Tunisia Men's Volleyball team started the last stage of preparation for the 2015 Men's African Nations Championship to be staged in Egypt July 22 to 30, 2015 in a local camp under supervision of the technical staff Head Coach Fathi Mkaouar, ass. coaches Riadh Hedhili and Noureddine Hefaiedh.

 

 The head coach selected 14 players for the finals led by veteran opposites Hichem Kaabi and Marouan Garci to train daily until they leave for Egypt on July 20.

 

 Tunisia who have 8 African titles under their name, started their Programme early this month with a camp in Turkey where they played three matches against the hosts whom they faced also during Pool F of their 2015 World League campaign last month.

 

 Tunisia lost the first and second matches in the same result 3-1 before they achieved a tight victory in a thrilling tiebreaker (25-23, 19-25, 17-25, 25-15, 19-17).
