Kabira Country Club, renowned for its world-class sporting facilities announced it is in this partnership supporting youth sports by availing these facilities to children in order to make a difference in the youth sports community.
Under this partnership, Kabira Country Club since opening its gates to three Ugandan tennis players from Uganda’s Under-12 (U-12) team has seen them qualify to compete in the Africa Junior Tennis Championships that will be held in Morocco this December.
The trio’s qualification comes after Uganda won the regional tennis championships in which U-12 tennis players from Kenya, Burundi, Tanzania and Uganda competed.
The three players representing Uganda at these Championships are Byaruhanga Ambrose who is 10 years of age and Tony Blair Oweknimungu and Ssendyowa Abdul Latif who are both 12 years old.
The Uganda Tennis Association president, Mr. Cedric Babu, was very pleased by Kabira Country Club’s support. He said this was a major step in making tennis more accessible to all Ugandans.
“My interest lies in developing the tennis fraternity from the grassroots to the international level. So we appreciate the opportunity we were given to train for free at Kabira Country Club by the Ruparelia family,” Mr. Babu said.
The Ruparelia Group of Companies has played a key role in building, promoting, and advancing tennis in Uganda.
In June this year, the Ruparelia Group supported the All-National Junior Open Tennis Championships, where juniors from the under eight, U-10, U-12, and U-14 categories competed for ascendancy at finals staged at Kabira Country Club.
The Ruparelia Group’s Director, Ms. Sheena Ruparelia, said the Group’s interest lies in developing Uganda’s future generation.
