Uganda's preparations to host the U-20 Africa women volleyball championships have hit a snag after new CAVB president Bouchra Hajij suspended all activities on the CAVB Calendar until 2021.
In a November 12 letter addressed to UVF president Hadija Namanda, Hajij in essence ended speculation over the championship that was scheduled for December 4-13.
"Kindly be informed that all CAVB competitions scheduled for the year 2020 have been postponed to next year, We are currently in close contact with FIVB to decide upon the way forward to align our competitions with that of FIVB, mainly for the competitions that serve as Qualifications to FIVB world championships," Hajij wrote
Uganda was supposed to play against Tanzania, Egypt, Tunisia, Cameroon next month.
The letter also reiterated how they are reviewing the hosting process for future competitions as well.
"We would also like to inform you that the CAVB is currently reviewing the hosting process of its competitions including the exigencies and challenges due to the pandemic," Hajij said.
In a nutshell, more emphasis will be put on qualification competitions as opposed to age group tournaments.
The news although disappointing should give the U-20 more time to prepare.
