Kampala Hockey Club invited for Kenya, Tanzania tourneys


After taking part in the Africa Cup of Club Championship that was concluded last weekend in Lugogo, Kampala Hockey Club has received invitations to participate in the Maseno Cup in Kenya and Tanzania’s Tanga tournament.
But the Lugogo-based club will await Uganda Hockey Association’s approval as clubs that participate in both tournaments must be blessed by their national federations.

Maseno Cup is slated for February 1-2 while Tanga will be held in July.
“We received invitations and we shall leave for Maseno on January 31 and for Tanga in July but we await UHA’s endorsement,” club chairman Ronald Kawalya told Daily Monitor.

“The men have been there before so this year we will take the ladies too so that we all gain from that much needed exposure,” he continued.
Meanwhile UHA’s spokesperson Jackie Namyalo said the association welcomes any move by local clubs to seek regional exposure.
