He named the players as Beatrice Kimaro, John Kimaro, Naitoti Singo and Victoria Singo.

"The team is ready and I am sure my players will perform well at the event ...the players were selected due to their outstanding performance during the previous events both locally and internationally," he said.

The DGC open elders is sponsored by SBC Tanzania, Alliance Insurance and Oryx Energies and winners will be awarded with cash and trophies.
