The national team has started the BWF Para-Badminton World Championships on a sad note in Switzerland.
 
Elizabeth Mwesigwa, Rose Nansereko, Khadija Khamuka, and Ritah Asiimwe all lost their opening fixtures at St. Jakobshalle, Basel today.
 
In Standing Lower (SL3) category, Uganda’s dependable player Elizabeth Mwesigwa succumbed to Australia’s Celine Aurelie in a tough match that ended 2-0 (21-9, 21-11).
 
Her colleague Rose Nansereko also fell to Poland’s Katarzyna Ziebik 2-0 (21-0, 21-3) in the other women’s single.
 
Meanwhile, in the Standing Lower (SL4), Uganda registered another setback after Khadija Khamuka lost against Seibert Katrin from Germany in a tight contest that ended 2-0 (21-12, 21-9) at the same venue.
 
Later on in the Standing Upper (SU5) category, national team player Ritah Asiimwe went down against a much stronger opponent Zehra Baglar of Turkey 2-0 (21-3, 21-1).
 
However, Uganda’s Mwesigwa, Khamuka, Nansereko and Asiimwe seemed to be in a winning mood later as they prepared to play Catherine Naudin (France), Mary Margaret (Scotland), Parul Dalsukhbhai (India) and Oliveira Cintya from Brazil respectively in their second fixtures.
 
The five-day event has attracted 306 participants across the world.
