Vincent Kisenyi, a lecturer in the Faculty of Business and Administration has been re-elected first vice-president of Uganda Woodball Association.
Kisenyi, will manage administration and development for the Association in a four-year term.
He beat, Robert Dramani of the Bank of Uganda, in a tight contest with 22 votes against 19 on January 4.
Kisenyi views his re-election as an opportunity to accomplish the unfinished tasks and embark on new projects such as increased funding.
In other elections, Paul Kayongo retained his seat as president while Shahnaaz Luwedde retained her slot as second vice-president. Others on the team are Coline Semanda (general secretary) and Sarah Mpima (treasurer).
Kisenyi, who doubles as the vice-president of the Association of Uganda University Sports, (AUUS)revealed that his main focus this term will be strengthening structures, now that people have picked interest in the sport.
Kisenyi said the federation has worked hard to ensure UCU is recognised in the sport that last year the university hosted an excellent coral courting Uganda Open Championship.
Kisenyi said in the previous term, the federation was able to launch the corporate league for woodball and theNationalWoodball League this year.
“We also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the management of Namboole Stadium to become the home of woodball,” Kisenyi said.
Kisenyi, however, expressed concern about the limited funding, arguing that this has limited the growth of the sport.
“The sport is expensive because the cost of equipment such as a set of two mallets, two balls and one gate stands at Shs270,000,” he said.
