The former Christ Church Foundation School student, who is now enrolled at The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, had his first taste of the sport when his brother started to play. Kennie admits that initially he was not very enthusiastic about playing the sport, but decided to still give it a go. After the first day of playing, he instantly fell in love with it.
