“I thank the Ugandan government and the Chinese government for the support rendered towards the development of Woodball in the country. I also appreciate the role played by our sponsors.”
He also stated that their major emphasis this year is to strength the structures and leadership of member clubs.
Our emphasis is to strengthen the structures not just in the federation but also in the clubs that make up the Woodball Federation. We think that once we strengthen the leadership of the clubs this will form a basis of improving the game in the country.” Our ambition is to spread this sport in various regions of the country.
“We have also been mandated to take the game on the African continent so far we have 12 and I believe by this we shall be joined by at least five new countries.”
