The 2022 Weatherhead Hockey open tournament successfully climaxed on Sunday, 5th June at the Lugogo Hockey grounds in Kampala city.

For the first time ever, there were a couple of night games played under floodlights and the finals were televised live on Sanyuka Television.

The three-day mouth-watering action witnessed a total of 83 goals scored in 32 matches.

Of these goals, 33 arrived on the opening day, 27 goals were netted on the subsequent day and 23 during the final day of action.

The hosts (Weatherhead) recorded the most goals scored in a single game, out-smarting WHC Vikings 10-0 during one of the day one games.


Weatherhead (men), DCU (women), Kakungulu Memorial High School (boys) and Kakungulu Memorial High School (girls) smiled back home as champions in the various categories.

It was all an Kakungulu affair as they humbled Kasasa 5-0 during the one sided girls’ finale before overcoming SMACK A 3-0 in the boys’ category.

A brace from apiece from Anita Atim and Brenda Achayo, supplemented by Irene Atim’s other goal won the day for Kakungulu girls’ team.

The Kakungulu boys’ team had their three goals against SMACK A scored by Shafik Byamukama, Jordan Ochaye and Swalik Isabirye.

DCU edged Weatherhead Historicals 2-0 in the women section.

Lucky Akello and Yvonne Madora scored for DCU.

Sadly, the grey patches were also envisaged as the absence of traditional rivals clubs; Kampala Hockey Club and Wananichi Hockey club denied the competition its desired competitive spirit.

By and large, the 2022 Weatherhead Hockey Open provided the due entertainment over the grueling three day’s action, a major precursor ahead of the league season.
