6th Ndejje Woodball Open:

 28th -29th  March 2015

At Ndejje University Main Campus

At least 40 teams have already confirmed participation in the 6th edition of the Ndejje Woodball open slated for this coming weekend at the Luwero based main Institution’s campus.

For this cause, Uganda Woodball Federation (UWbF) administrator, John Baptist Kateregga anticipates stiff competition:

The 2015 edition of Ndejje Woodball Open is expected to produce tight races in the schools and institutions categories

The two-day tournament will feature Clubs, universities, primary and secondary schools in contest of the championships titles played on stroke and fairway knockout basis.

Ndejje University has offered free accommodation to all teams. Ndejje Gardens Restaurant has sponsored the trophies while Nteza Sports will provide medals for the winners

An official statement from the federation reads.

The emergence of new teams on the woodball front as Mpoma Girls SS as envisaged from the recently concluded Kyambogo open is definitely adding to the spark among the girls’ event of the secondary catergory.

Better still, the open will once again provide the plat off for the two woodball ‘female lionesses’ – Lillian Zawedde and Joan Mukoova.

Whereas Mukoova boasts of the Sports writers gong (Under the USPA Body), Zawedde is the Federation ‘s best.

Like the race was at the Kyambogo open (the two tied with 56 strokes apiece), the scriot will not be any different at the Ndejje do.

In the male event, towering player, Onesmas Atamba, Bruno Bbosa and the new revelation, Denis Ssekidde plus a host of many unknown entities will vie for the best alongside USPA player of the year Joel Adupa.

How Teams Performed Last Year:

Ndejje University A last year won the 5th edition of Ndejje University Open and saw Lillian Zawedde (2014 USPA female player of the year) take the ladies crown with 95 strokes  while Bruno Bbosa lifted the men’s trophy with 62 strokes.

Kyambogo College School won the men’s category after Samuel Mubboti stroked 25 while Kings College Budo’s Ruth Mirembe registered 25 strokes to claim the ladies prize.
