Uganda’s number one squash player Michael Kawooya will go for training in Denmark ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

The Games which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, are slated to run from July 23 until August 3.

Kawooya’s one-month training will take place at the Hammerum sports skills training centre starting next month.

“This training will go a long way in preparing me for the upcoming Commonwealth Games,” Kawooya said.
