Winning several championships does not motivate tennis player Henry Muyanja as much as knowing that there are young players aspiring to be him.
That is exactly the reason why Muyanja appealed to Tennis clubs and their association to organise competitions for children.
“I want to thank the organisers (Lugogo Tennis Club) for giving us this opportunity to showcase our talents and I urge all clubs to keep organising such events,” Muyanja stated.
“However I appeal to clubs to organize many of these tournaments for the young players. That is how we shall promote tennis,” Muyanja said.
“Having children train and play tennis without competitions that expose them is like a child going to school and not doing exams,” Muyanja explained before donating two trophies and sh200,000 from his prize money to the club.
To win the tournament, Muyanja beat Gingo Kalungi in the final.
UCA president Cedric Babu urged players to be active by participating regularly in the club organized activities as they work on getting back to the international federation.
Uganda was scrapped off the International activities for failure to pay the affiliation fees to the World governing body.
“We are soon going back to the international Federations and hopefully before the General assembly on June 24, we should be in good books,” Babu stated.
