Chinese Ambassador’s visit to UWbF

The month of February ended on a high with a visit from the Chinese Ambassador to Uganda. In his visit the Amb’ toured several of woodball’s establishments including the administrative offices, our show room, and the woodball equipment factory at Ndejje Luweero district.

In his speech while on the tour the Amb’ promised support to the woodball game development in Uganda and Africa. UWbF is in the process of acquiring much better machinery which can produce at least 50 sets of woodball playing equipment per day. With that in mind the Amb’s visit came at a time when it was most needed.
