Uganda Beach Volleyball Team (Red) set for qualifiers

Uganda will have its last shot at qualifying for the September All Africa Games as the Women Beach Volleyball Qualifiers serve off in Mombasa Kenya this weekend.

Youngsters Faith Magole and Ester Tumwebaze were selected as a fallback position for the Beach Council after the squad that had been prepared became incomplete on the final day.

The Beach Council had selected Amuron Eunice to pair with Peace Busingye since her partner Alupo Christine was still injured.

However, the Council was shocked with a last minute apology from Amuron not making the Mombasa trip after confirming earlier and attending training sessions with her partner.

Efforts to get an emergency replacement for her were futile as everyone contacted declined citing short notice and commitments.

The Beach Council eventually broke through when they secured the entries of the former U-19 pair of Faith and Ester who both feature for UCU Volleyball Club.

Mofaht Masaba confirmed that the pair had safely arrived in Mombasa this afternoon (Friday).

Uganda just has to tussle it out with hosts Kenya and neighbours Tanzania with the top two finishers qualifying for the Finals in Congo Brazzaville.

The men failed to qualify when Nicholas Dheyongera and Malinga Kathbart during the Dar es Salaam qualifiers last month.
