After winning the bid to stage the Championship, Uganda can only count herself as having successfully hosted the event if it emerges champion. This is not being overambitious. There has been a surge in form in Uganda that is now rated seventh in the world.

The Team: Florence Adonia, Suzan Atino, Irene Eyaru, Privas Kayen, Betty Kizza, Joyce Nakibuule, Sharifah Nalunkuma, Shaffie Nalwanga, Joan Nampungu, Brenda Namubiru, Victor Nantumbwe, Mary Nuba.

There will be immense interest in how Team Uganda will perform at the championship considering the country’s recent performances in international netball in recent months.The hosts will be motivated by Uganda She Cranes’ performance at the CommonWealth Games and Africa Netball Championship  in Australia and Zambia respectively. Uganda bowed out of the 2018 Commonwealth Games with an inspiring sixth place finish in Gold coast.

Game#8  Uganda 77 - Singapore 19
Game#11 Uganda 132 - Sri Lanka 24

Having had a fairly free-flowing Championship, the hosts had to dig deep to remain unbeaten, coming from behind to secure a draw against South Africa in their last Game of the fixtures. The Mighty Cranes went into the Final well aware of the task ahead of them and in the ensuing nail-biting encounter, emerged victorious, pipping South Africa by 1 goal. Final Score 44-43 in favour of Uganda; 3rd FISU WUNC 2018 Champions.
