CHIEF Executive Officers (CEO's) will be battling it out for the inaugural golf tournament scheduled to start this year after an initiative by the Corporate League organizers to incorporate top management into competitive activities.

The CEO's have always been left out in most of the action but starting this year, the inaugural CEO's golf tournament scheduled for Kampala is likely to answer all their questions.

Golf is likely to increase the level of CEO's participation and also improve work relations according to the Corporate League chairman Richard Kawere.

"It's a special group of people that we are targeting here. They could be so busy to prepare for the field games or highly masculine games but at least we expect them to show up for this less tiresome game," Kawere said at the press conference at Hotel Africana on Tuesday.

Apart from golf, the 13th edition will also have the inaugural beach soccer tournament as the other new sports discipline on the menu after erasing two others; table tennis and bowling from the list of activities.

Sports disciplines like bowling was scraped following the temporally closure of the host venue, Alleygators at Garden City and according to Kawere they have also had to do away with table tennis because it was attracting a very small crowd.

“We have had to write off bowling from the list because of the venue and mechanical errors that participants were complaining about and also had to leave out table tennis because it attracts a very small crowd,” he said.

The other disciplines that will be contested for this year include football, basketball, netball, volleyball, athletics, swimming, and pool and fun games.

Similarly six new companies including DHL, Orient Bank, Protea Hotels, KCB, G4S and UAP Insurance are the new teams in the contest following the exit of Warid Telecom, Balton, CNOOC, Infocom, Enviroplan and Insurance Regulatory Authority.
