The Uganda National Volleyball league served off on Thursday evening at MTN Indoor Arena at Lugogo with two games, one in the men’s division and the other in the women category.
The first game saw the two Women’s African club volleyball Championship representatives in Cairo face off.
The current league holders Nkumba managed to start off the league with a big statement as they overcame Vision Volleyball camp (VVC) 3-1.
After falling 21-25 in the first set, Tony Lokany’s side managed to stage a successfull comeback to win the subsequent three sets 26-24, 25-14 and 25-23.
Speaking shortly after the game, Lokany noted:
“The first set was tough but we managed to recollect ourselves and got the result we wanted, the substitutes were very good and everyone on the team had a good contribution.
“We have started on a very good note, I believe beating VVC, one of the best teams in the league has given us much confidence.”
On defending the league, he added: “Winning the title will be difficult for us but it’s a long way to go, we are just going to do our part, correct some errors.”
In the men’s tie, Ndejje recieved a real baptism of fire as they lost 0-3 (26-28, 20-25, 21-25) to KCCA.
Action in the top flight league will return on Sunday with KAVC and Espoir facing off, among other games, at Nsambya courts.
