Scottish teams await squash squad ahead of Commonwealth Games

KAMPALA – Uganda’s squash team will play several build-up matches in Scotland ahead of the 2014 Commonwealth Games that get underway from July 23 to August 3 in Glasgow, Scotland.

John Bosco Tamwesigire, the chairman of Uganda and Squash Rackets Associations said that the team will play against six clubs in different parts of Scotland.

“This is a very good chance because it will help our players acclimatise and also face some good players,” he said.
Uganda’s team will be led by their top players Michael Kawooya, Paul Kadoma and Ian Rukunya accompanied by coach Augustine Banyu Musinguzi.

Tamwesigire said after failing to win medals at the last Commonwealth Games in India, they have prepared hard and these build-up games will also put the players in good shape.

Uganda will send 62 athletes to Glasgow to take part in different sports disciplines including swimming, shooting, cycling, weightlifting, Paralympics, badminton, rugby, athletics. They will be accompanied by 36 officials.
