Fresh off her Independence Cup victory, Vicky Namuyanja has set her sights on becoming the first female open pool champion.

The field is set, it's now left to the players to prove that they are worthy of the Toyota Altezza and Raum on the Nile Special Pool National Open grand finale on October 27 at the Lugogo Arena.

The finale is only 10 days away and talk around the city is rife with who will be the last man or woman standing.

Fresh off her Independence Cup victory, Vicky Namuyanja has set her sights on becoming the first female open pool champion.

"I love to win, but I love big prizes even more, which is why I am motivated at major tournaments. The reason why I have been successful at the major championships is my composure," stated Namuyanja.

Vicky is one of four female seeds including Rita Nimusiima, Angella Busingye and Sharon Mirembe.

32 women qualified for the grand finale, this for all intents and purposes makes for an exciting competition because there will be nowhere to hide.

"There are players I would not like to meet in the early rounds. Rukiya Nayiga her sister Rashida Muteesi and Sheila Anka are in fine form," she admitted

The seeds risk meeting fellow top players who are not seeded early in the knockout competition which can have serious repercussions.
