Badminton stars Tracy Naluwooza and Shamika Fadilah will renew their rivalry at the Uganda international Open championship starting on Thursday at Lugogo.

Naluwooza from Mbogo High had a fruitful weekend after she beat Kibuli’s Fadilah in two-straight sets (21-11, 21-13) to clinch the U-15 girls title at the inaugural Classic Inter-Schools Badminton tournament on Sunday.

“I was tired after playing an earlier game that’s why I couldn’t handle the pressure and she took advantage of that, but I am sure we shall meet again at the Uganda international and this time I will challenge her,” Fadilah said.

However, Naluwooza said she has beaten her colleague in a number of local ournaments and is capable of doing the same at the upcoming four days event.

“I have had a better record over my colleague and I don’t think she can turn it around because I am also preparing hard for the same games,” she stated.
