Uganda Netball national team camp was in a sombre mood as the She Cranes Head Coach, Ssalongo Mugerwa Fred Tabale named the final twelve.

Tears both of despair and joy in respect to those who were dropped and those that will represent the nation at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham England.

The team has not changed much from the one that won the 2021 Pent Series and finished second in Africa Netball championships hosted in Nambia the same year.

The only change being that two local based players have been displaced by international players in captain Peace Proscovia and Mary Nuba Cholhok.

“We selected the players based on their performance and the coordination they had in the training, we believe they are going to give us the best,” Coach Mugerwa Fred said before adding.

“We entered residential training on Monday and we are doing well, the purpose of having this residential is for players bonding and mental strength.”

The team is camping at Nakirebe Indoor Arena where there is a stadium with a playing surface equivalent to that of Birmingham.

The team is expected to fly to Birmingham on 20th July 2022. Uganda is in group B with the hosts, England, New Zealand, Trinidad and Tobago, Northern Ireland and Malawi.
