Babu Teams Up With Kabira Country Club To Promote Sports Talent In Uganda

Renowned Ugandan tennis star Cedric Babu, who is the president of the Uganda Tennis Association, has entered into a partnership with tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia’s Kabira Country Club in a bid to promote tennis talent in Uganda.

Following the recent victories registered by sportsmen like athletics gold champion Joshua Cheptegei, Uganda Cranes star Dennis Onyango and other sportsmen, Kabira Country Club, renowned for its world class sporting facilities, is 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 opened its gates to three Ugandan tennis players from Uganda’s Under-12 (U-12) team who have qualified to compete in the Africa Junior tennis Championships set to 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, 10 years of age and Tony Blair Oweknimungu and Ssendyowa Abdul Latif who are both 12 years old.
