Uganda Charity Trust Fund - Helping Children Through Education & Sport

Cricket

Our cricket programme was established in 2008 with the founding of our own club. Since then our impact on the game of cricket in Uganda has been dramatic. Through the club we have established competitive teams, introduced the sport to schools and run introductory coaching sessions.

UCTF Cricket Club: Our club is the face of our cricket programme. Both our boys and girls' teams play in the top tier of the national league. Managed by the players themselves, the club not only serves as a development programme for bringing through new talents, but also as a platform for our best players to refine their game.

Some of our biggest achievements: In 2010 our boys' team, with an average age of 17, won Division 2 and are now playing in the Premier Division.

We have 3 boys and 4 girls playing for the respective Senior National Teams, and 5 playing for the U19 National Men's Team.

In both 2011 and 2012 our girls' team were crowned champions after winning the National Twenty20 Tournament.

UCTF C.C. was responsible for the introduction of cricket to two schools in 2010. Both schools qualified for the National Schools Cricket Tournament.
