Uganda Bridge Federation to Showcase Bridge Game at UMEA Solidarity Games 2024 at Masaka Secondary School

In an exciting development for the world of mind sports, the Uganda Bridge Federation (UBF) has been granted a coveted slot in the upcoming UMEA Solidarity Games 2024. The event, set to be held at Masaka Secondary School from March 28th to April 1st, aims to promote solidarity and camaraderie among students from Muslim-based schools across Uganda. The inclusion of bridge in the games demonstrates the growing recognition and appreciation for the intellectual card game in the country.

The Uganda Bridge Federation, known for its relentless efforts to promote, develop, and protect the game of bridge, sees this opportunity as a significant milestone. Bridge, a game known for its strategic depth and intellectual challenges, is gaining traction in Uganda, particularly among students and young professionals. The federation believes that introducing bridge to platforms like the UMEA Solidarity Games will further popularize the game and encourage more participation among the youth.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase bridge at the UMEA Solidarity Games,” said the Technical Director, Musasizi John. He added that”Bridge is not just a game; it’s a mental sport that fosters critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork. By participating in events like the UMEA Games, we hope to inspire more students to take up bridge and experience the thrill of competitive play.”

The UBF has been actively preparing for the event, organizing demonstration sessions and training workshops to familiarize students with the rules and strategies of bridge. Experienced players and coaches will be on hand to guide participants through the intricacies of the game and provide valuable insights into bridge tactics and techniques.

Following the UMEA Solidarity Games, bridge enthusiasts can look forward to another exciting event on the horizon. The Uganda Bridge Federation has announced that bridge will be featured in the National Secondary Schools Mind Sports Championship scheduled to take place in October 2024 at Wakisha Resource Centre. This national-level competition will bring together the best young bridge players from schools across Uganda to compete for top honors and showcase their skills on a larger stage.

As bridge continues to gain momentum in Uganda, events like the UMEA Solidarity Games and the National Secondary Schools Mind Sports Championship serve as important platforms for promoting the game and nurturing the next generation of bridge players. With the support of organizations like the Uganda Bridge Federation, bridge is well-positioned to thrive and flourish in the country for years to come.
