Kampala ready to welcome the world
Beach volleyball history will be made in late September when Kampala becomes the first city in east Africa to host an FIVB event, with the double gender Kampala Open.
Uganda’s capital will host the fourth of five double-gender Open events in 2013, from September 25-29 at the Lugogo UMA Show Grounds.
Kampala is a city of 1.72 million people located in the central south of the country, close to the northern shore of Lake Victoria.
The tournament is a major boon for the region, which has slowly been improving its levels of play and organisation in the sport and is now ready to take the next step by hosting a top-level event. Beach volleyball has been growing in popularity in the country over the last couple of years with the participation of Ugandan teams in the London Prepares Test Event in 2011 as well as the Continental Cup.
