Having won the KIU Open tournament the other week, Vision Volleyball Camp (VVC) have set their sight on the next event on the Uganda Volleyball Federation (UVF) calendar – the MUST Open.
The event is slated for this weekend at Mbarara University of Science and Technology and VVC head coach Hannington Nsubuga believes it is yet another opportunity for his charges to try and get back to their best.
“The team is starting to gel really well and that has made us a better team so far,” Nsubuga told Kawowo Sports ahead of the tournament.
“The team psychology is much better and we expect to put up more exciting plays,” the tactician added.
Prior to winning the KIU Open, VVC had gone nearly a year without testing silverware.
And for a team that was used to winning silverware year in year out, close to year without winning is such a long time.
Vision Volleyball Camp had last won silverware in March last year when they defeated Sport-S to win the Joan Cox tournament in Gayaza.
“We have been working hard and now our new signings are blending well with the old ones,” Nsubuga stated.
New signings Margaret Namyalo and Irene Amoding inspired the side en-route to winning the cup.
Nsubuga further reveals that his side has ably dealt with the issues they had in their setting department.
“We have been struggling in our setting department but the new setters are doing much better at the moment.”
VVC lost setter Shamim Makongoro to rivals Sport-S and remained with one setter, Angel Kembabazi. Consequently, Nsubuga switched Josephine Nammanda, a receiver-attacker to play as a setter with Kembabazi playing as her understudy.
The attention for the teams will now turn to the Mbarara Open tournament that is slated for this weekend in Mbarara.
