Second Elliptics Awards slated for September 8 in Nairobi

Kenyan rugby fans will again have the opportunity to fete outstanding personalities in the world of rugby when The Ministry of Rugby hosts the second annual Elliptics Awards Gala Dinner on Saturday 8 September 2012 at the Pride Inn in Westlands.

The event, which has been sanctioned by the Kenya Rugby Union, was first held in 2010. It is a rugby fans' initiative to present various awards to individuals and organizations that have participated in contributing to the excellence, commitment and love of rugby. The Event is run, organized and coordinated by the 'Ministry of Rugby."

A major highlight of this year's event will be recognizing and awarding some of the players who have taken Kenya to the highest levels of rugby. As the awards provide an opportunity for the rugby fans to award their own selected nominees and winners in the various categories, the winners at the end of the Gala go out proudly as the "peoples' choice" voted for by the fans.

The Awards Gala covers all facets of rugby including the administration in which the fans get an opportunity to reward the administrators of the game. The categories will cover:

Elliptics MVP of the Year (Male)
