“The league will help UBA to identify more talent and provide the players with a platform to check their performance levels every weekend.” she said

“It will happen twice in a week and will be played in a round robin format implying teams will face each other on a home and away basis but with Lugogo as the neutral ground.” she added and concluded.

Teams will face off in the singles, doubles, and mixed doubles with a team that wins the tie, bagging three points and each team taking one point in case of a tie draw.

The respective leagues will be played for a period of eight months with aim of giving the players more experience and game time as they look forward to prepare for different tournaments.
