th THE HISTORY OF VX UGANDA IN MAKING PART 2 global vx visit
Craig and Paul arrived in Entebbe airport to be met ny Bakaze Robert CEO of VX Uganda and Executive board member Hasindihe James all four took the 45 minute drive to the hotel in Kampala where Craig and Paul were dropped off and booked in ready for a well deserved sleep.
The following day they were picked up by the guys and proceeded to the squash courts at Makerere University to meet the rest of the people who were playing VX, what Craig and Paul saw blew them away, lots of people playing VX and this was all achieved with just 4 sticks half a dozen balls a pair of score counters and a shed load of enthusiasm and determination. They were good!!!!!
The two watched a practice session taken by Gerald Kanyesgye and it was just like they were back at home… only in was warm.
These guys had sat down thought about what they needed to achieve and then went out and delivered. They had only seen video clips and had talked to many of our players in the UK but they managed.
During the trip Craig and Paul qualified some coaches and assessors so that they were able to take the sport forward so we now have qualified coaches and assessors in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
On the second day there while they were watching practice a gentleman called Ray Carthy who was at the University promoting a new South African wine came over to see what was going on. Craig spent the next hour explaining how the game was played and fielding a million and one questions about what they were trying to do. That evening they interviewed Ray who asked if he could present to them how he would like to take the sport to South Africa and develop it there, another new National Governing Body was born, VX South Africa.
On the last day or their trip the guys watched the inaugural African Nations Cup where 3 nations were represented Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania and an African Nations Champion was crowned Timothy Malinga.
The final act for Craig and Paul during the trip was to promote Bakaze Robert to CEO of the VX African Nations and Hasindihe James to CEO of VX Uganda, both have done an outstanding job in developing the sport and we wish them well in their endeavors.
