No restrictions to tennis courts at Lugogo, says NCS

NCS General Secretary Nicholas Muramagi was reacting after some players complained that NCS does not give them a chance to use the courts.

National Council of Sports (NCS) has refuted claims that tennis players have been restricted from accessing the tennis courts at Lugogo.

Acting NCS General Secretary Nicholas Muramagi was reacting after some players complained that NCS does not give them a chance to use the courts.

"These players have an association which I believe is supposed to inform us about their upcoming events so that courts are available for them to use. But is not true that they are restricted from using the courts,"Muramagi stated.

He added that some players want to use the courts as and when they wish which is impossible since there are modalities which have to be followed.

Earlier last week, players were blaming NCS of locking them out of the courts.

"These days we are not allowed to use the courts. We are told to pay if we are to use the grounds yet we have upcoming tennis events in Rwanda this month. At times the nets are removed from courts so that we don't use them. The fee they charge to use the courts is high we can't manage it," one of the players complained.

Members at Lugogo tennis club pay sh10, 000 per hour to use the court while non-members are required to pay sh15,000.
