Rugby Development

Elite Performance Sports (EPS) was founded to provide an opportunity for those seeking to learn rugby or improve on their playing skills. EPS also provides sports coaching services and is also a sports tour facilitator in addition to event organisation and management. Our member’s ages range from 6 to 17 years with the majority falling in the 13-16 years age group, drawn from various schools around Nairobi. Senior players over 18 years join us after completing school to polish up on their rugby playing skills before moving on to club rugby.

Since taking up Parklands Sports Club as their base in 2013 has seen EPS grow in stature and recognition. More than 100 players of all ages have passed through the rugby academy programme. EPS has hosted under 16 year tournaments in the 10’s, 7’s, and 15’s version of the game. It has also taken players to South Africa on skill, talent, and educational and cultural tours in the years 2014, 2015, and 2016. Seven of our players have been selected to the Kenya under 20 national 2017 team squad. Three of our players were scouted by a visiting South Africa coach who held a camp in November 2016 and was hosted at Parklands Sports Club. They await formal admission to schools in Durban, South Africa on 100% scholarships. Negotiations are ongoing with an education placement company to offer two scholarships annually to our players to study at selected universities outside Kenya.

To further develop the game EPS has approached 10 schools within greater Westland area and started work with 3 of them under its TUCHEZE RUGBY programme.

It is our hope that we shall have more players from PSC membership signing up to train with us as the year progresses.

Swimming

Our Club has got all weather, modern and temperature modulated swimming pool. For Members whose swimming is their leisure or career, then Parklands Sports Club will provide the facility for perfect practice.

Many people believe that the most common purpose for swimming is recreation. Recreational swimming is considered by many as a good way to relax, while enjoying a good full-body workout. Several swimming styles are suitable for recreational swimming; most recreational swimmers prefer a style that keeps their head out of the water and has an underwater arm recovery.Why punish your body with cold swimming during harsh cold weathers when you can enjoy a well temperature regulated swimming here at our swimming pool. After much day’s work and even other strenuous exercises in the Club e.g. gym and jogging, nothing comes close to the pleasure of diving and floating on a pool of water.

For the children who love swimming, our swimming experienced staff are always available to assist them in case of difficulties as they have fun in the water with their new found friends.All members’ spouses of their eligible dependents whose parents have paid the sports levy do not need to pay for swimming sessions.

Monthly Run

The Parklands Marathon Club owes its origins to 2004 when five Founder Members mooted the idea of Members running together once a month. Whilst the initial events were restricted to PSC Members only, the mini-marathons/ marathons subsequently became ‘open’ events where non-members participated alongside members, as part of the Club’s CSR.

The event – which is religiously held every First Sunday of the month – has become the most popular Club event, with an average participation of two hundred (200) runners, ranging from juniors to veterans.

Most notably, the monthly events have produced elite runners who continue to win marathons across the divide.

There can be no better way of taking care of your health and fitness and hence the PSC Marathoners Club’s motto of ‘RUNNING FOR OUR HEALTH AND FITNESS’. It is therefore time for you to connect with the event, every First Sunday of the month.
