Kenya Pipeline have qualified for the 2017 African Women's Volleyball Club Championships quarterfinals in the ongoing games in Tunisia.

 Pipeline, who are seven-time champions, secured their second consecutive win after beating a resilient GSP of Algeria by straight sets (26-24, 25-23, 25-16) in a Group C encounter on Saturday evening.

The first set was a closely contested affair between the two sides and it was the same performance in the second set, but Japheth Munala's side was not letting their weakness show.

They dropped a few points when under attack, but got the better of their opponents with awesome strikes at the net.
