Uganda National women volleyball champions Ndejje have promised to leave a mark at the Africa Volleyball championships.
According to Ndejje University’s Paul Mark Kayongo, the communication will give them a chance to look for funds for the team to travel to Madagascar and represent Uganda effectively.
The club has confirmed participating in the continental event after the dates were shifted to give them a chance to prepare for the tournament. The tournament that had earlier been scheduled for next month will now be hosted in April.
“We had pulled out because the university was due to take part in the East Africa University Games and we did not have enough time to prepare and also look for funding but April gives us some time to prepare for the tournament. We will go out and look for funds. I am positive we shall take part in the continental event,” said Kayongo.
Uganda will now enter a maximum of nine teams in the tournament, which leaves the national university sports federation with a formula of selecting that university that would like to represent the country in the games in case they are more than the required number in football. Meanwhile, the numbers of football teams that will be competing in the East Africa University Games have been slashed to enable the organisers plan for the tournament.
The games are due in Dar Es Salaam next month and the time for qualification is not enough.
