Elite Soccer Academy emerged as the top performers as the 9th edition of the Entebbe Holiday Football and Netball Camp climaxed at Nkumba on Sunday.

The Entebbe based side won the U-9 and U-13 boys categories after defeating Sky Soccer Academy 2-1 in both finals respectively. 

Apart from playing football and netball, this year's edition was used to sensitise the public about the dangers of tuberculosis and how it can be prevented.

"Through sports, you can be able to reach out to so many people. I believe the time we have spent playing this competition, the public has been enlighted about the risks of tuberculosis and how it can be avoided, "Shafik Kakooza one of the organisers of the competition said.

The other reason behind the competition was to promote talent among the young generation, provide education through bursaries and giving a hand to those from poor backgrounds through football and netball.
