The Women’s Beach Handball national team picked important lessons at the recently concluded Africa Beach Handball Championship in Hammamet, Tunisia.

The team finished fourth behind champions Tunisia and neighbours Kenya. Team Uganda had only one win and three losses in the competition.

According to Team Captain, Scovia Lamunu, the tourney was a success for the group because it was “our first time at such a big event and other we have picked valuable lessons and we hope to exhibit a better performance at the next tournament.” 

Isma Bazanye, who is the national women’s beach handball head coach says valuable experience, skills and tactics have been earned by his charges from the championship.

“Our initial target was to qualify for the World Beach Games and the World Games and we were able to attain that. We have also got exposure at our first competition of such magnitude,” Bazanye said.

He also added that the team narrowly missed a podium finish after failing to edge Mali in a penalty shoot-out.

Team Uganda is now ranked fourth in Africa and will take part in the World Beach Games later this year.
