The Uganda National Netball team, She Cranes will face England Roses in a three-match Vitality Netball International Series as part of the preparations for next year’s World Cup in England.
The She Cranes started training on Tuesday at the MTN Arena in Lugogo, two days after the National netball League concluded.
On their tour to England, She Cranes will most certainly be looking to demonstrate once again their talent and potential on the international stage.
Fans of the Vitality Netball Superleague will recognise Uganda’s captain – Loughborough Lightning star Peace Proscovia.
The She Cranes have developed rapidly over the last few years, rising from 15th (August 2014) in the International Netball Federation’s world rankings to 7th (April 2018).
During this period, they not only clinched their first-ever African netball title but became the first host nation to do so unbeaten.
The England Roses will play on home soil for the first time since being crowned Commonwealth Games champions.
