Women World Softball Championships (Surrey, Canada, July 15-24)

For what was looking as a clear path for the Uganda national softball team to the Women World Softball Championships in Canada, uncertainties have started to surface!

Two players might lose their places at the championships over what the UBASA chairman describes as delayed fulfillment of a promise by NCS to offer two tickets to the national team that is supposed to travel to Canada on Saturday.

"National Council of Sports had promised to provide us with two tickets and we had the confidence that everything was going fi ne but now we are worried about their promise since we are left with a few days to go and they are not shading a clear picture" said Dennis Kasozi chairman Uganda Baseball and Softball Association.

If the promise is not fulfilled before Thursday, it is likely two players will be dropped from the team, taking only twelve and of course the two that are already in Canada; Crossley Magdalena and Crossley Maria, the two twin Canada-based players with Uganda roots who decided to represent the country at the championships.

This would only make a total of 14 players and it certainly means Uganda will ride on few personnel which can definitely affect their performance.

However Nicholas Muramagi, the NCS general secretary says: "The offer still stands so long as UBASA comply with all the requirements and registration of the association.
