It was all smiles for Naiga last weekend as she added another trophy to her Collection, Lukia’s compilation on discipline ,talent and hard work led to her victory we congratulate her for being the first winner of E-play tournament Ladies category.


Namuyanja Vicky aka VICKY SKILLS as always one of the top player in the Uganda pool sport fought only to become second in the ladies section in a final with Lukia however she silenced both Lukia and Rashidah in the semi finals of life 1 in penalties though second life managed only second position.

Kayanja Ibra aka Musilamu seed one Uganda who is also a player under the E-play Management as far as pool is concerned managed to take second position after a long drought of winning anything in pool for months. He bounces back with a bang defeating Sejjemba Ibrahim convincingly in the semi Finals. He was later granted his gift by his manager and also a representative from E-play Africa Mr Luyombya Fahad.

Seed one Uganda in the ladies section a one Mutesi Rashidah, Her face says it all as she only mananged 3rd overall position. What is kind obvious that she will bounce back stronger as the question still rise will she win the biggest tournament in Uganda (NATIONAL OPEN )this year its only question among the fans after loosing the last one to Nimusiima Ritah in the finals.

The wild card of the championship Kafuleka Ivan shocked fans after defeating one of the best pool players Ssejjemba Ibrahim in the 3rd place playoff. One is only left to wonder what Kafuleka has in store for his supporters in the near future. With special recognition we (E-PLAY AFRICA ) congratulate IVAN for a brilliant performance.

Sejemba Ibra doesn’t seem impressed by his overall position but Pool is Pool. He has to persist, train harder to regain his prowess in Uganda pool. He still stands as one of the favorites to win this year’s National Open Championship. (We can only wait)

In a special way we would like to recognise the following people who did all their best to make the tournament happen, SIMONPETER KYOBE, KALIBBALA ISMAIL, ROGERS, NAIGA LUKIA, SERO AND ALL PARTICIPANTS.
