Having returned from the Africa Clubs Championship on Tuesday, Ndejje Elites will not take part in this weekend’s MUST Open in Mbarara.
Head coach Johnson Kawenyera confirmed to Kawowo Sports that his girls will need to take some time off to recover from the fatigue that comes with playing tough games on the continent.
The national league champions Ndejje Elites returned from Tunisia Tuesday morning having recorded an 11th place finish.
“The season is long and exams start next week,” Kawenyera revealed to Kawowo Sports.
Ndejje have already won one tournament this year. They defeated Sport-S to win the Joan Cox tournament in Gayaza at the start of the year.
Sport-S are the defending champions of the MUST Open having defeated Vision Volleyball Camp 3-0 to win it last year.
Ndejje, who made their debut on the continent in 2013, were Uganda’s only representatives at the continental competition and will now look to try and retain the national league as well as winning more silverware at home.
The team’s best performance on the continent came in 2013 when they made their debut in Antananarivo, Madagascar.
Vision Volleyball Camp remain as Uganda’s best performing side at the event having posted 7th place in 2014.
