This bold initiative comes in response to the appointment of a male chairperson by the World Netball Normalisation Committee, sparking a wave of enthusiasm and determination among Ugandan men to actively participate in the governance of the sport they love.

Historically, Netball has been predominantly associated with women, both in terms of players and administrators.

However, the landscape is rapidly evolving, and the inclusion of men in leadership positions is a testament to the sport’s commitment to diversity and equality.

The decision to contest for the top seat in Uganda’s Netball body reflects a broader societal shift towards recognizing and valuing the talents and capabilities of individuals irrespective of gender.

It sends a powerful message that leadership positions should be based on merit and competence rather than gender stereotypes.

While some may view this move as unconventional, it signifies a progressive step towards dismantling barriers and promoting gender equality within sports governance.

By embracing diversity and welcoming the participation of men in traditionally female-dominated sports, Uganda is setting a precedent for inclusivity and representation on the global stage.

As the world watches Uganda’s pioneering approach to Netball leadership, it serves as a reminder that true progress is achieved when everyone is given an equal opportunity to contribute and lead.

With their unwavering commitment and passion for the sport, Uganda’s men are poised to make a lasting impact, not only within their own country but across the global Netball community.
