Mary Nuba enjoyed the pressure and responsibility in her first professional season at Loughborough Lightning team in the United Kingdom but also relishes the additional role of representing Uganda at the recently concluded Netball World in Liverpool, England.

The 6’7 shooter says that making it to the global stage for the first time is every netballer’s dream and the experience plus limelight she got at the world event will boost her professional career. She netted 75 of 85 shots at World Cup to add on the tally of shooting stars Rachael Nanyonga, Peace Proscovia and Stella Oyella.
“We did not perform to the best but the World Cup is among my memorable experiences in netball. I have added to my caps, gained exposure and grown in the game,” Nuba told Daily Monitor.

“It’s been a dream come true to play at World Cup and this experience is going to help me achieve big in our next season of the English Vitality Netball League,” she added.
Nuba joined Loughborough Lightning from National League side NIC after a tremendous show at the World University Netball Championships in 2018.
She won the Golden Shot Award at the end of their season – her best experience at Loughborough Lightning so far.
