Spotting (identification) and nurturing of talent is best done at the grassroots.

The schools’ sports tournaments are one avenue of identifying potential talented young sportsmen who ensure continuity and steady growth of sporting disciplines.

Upon this background, the schools badminton tournaments are given a top priority by the Uganda Badminton Association (UBA).

Close to 20 schools will take part in the 2019 edition of the Taibah International Badminton tournament at Lugogo Indoor Arena in Kampala.

This three-day championship will be held between Friday, 15th to Sunday, 17th March 2019.

It was officially launched on Wednesday, 13th March at Taibah Junior School, Kawempe.

Taibah International Schools has once again bankrolled the tourney with a financial package of Shs 8M.

Primary and Secondary Schools will compete in the categories of U-10, U-13, U-15 and U-19 with individual as well as team events.

Last year’s winners, Mbogo High and Kibuli S.S in the female and male respective categories, are some of the schools to keep watch of.

Others will include the host school Taibah International, Mbogo High, Nakasero, Kololo High, Aga Khan among others.

We are delighted that the Taibah International badminton tournament has been launched. We expect a big turn up of young talented boys and girls to showcase their talents. I thank our main sponsors Taibah International Schools for the support and we are looking forward at identifying new talents in the game of Badminton.
