Gaborone, Botswana | THE INDEPENDENT REPORTER Uganda’s U-21 netball team will aim to put the dissapointment of a narrow semifinal defeat aside when they take on South Africa today in a classification match in the ongoing  Netball World Youth Cup  in Gaborone, Botswana.

The She Pearls of Uganda have already improved on their performance from the last tournament in 2013, where they finished 15th. South Africa were 5th in 2013.

Uganda led for most of the semifinal against Fiji on Thursday, but let it slip in the final quarter to fall by two goals.

Fiji’s win gave them an opportunity to finish in the top four, and relegated Uganda to playing for 5th to 8th positions. Victory today, will see Uganda end 5th or 6th.

Fiji takes on defending champions New Zealand, while England take on Wales in the other semifinal.

The Netball World Youth Cup is the pinnacle of netball competition for emerging players who are under 21 years of age and the INF has held an U21 international competition every four years since 1988.

The African countries competing are Uganda, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

This is the first time the  International Netball Federation (INF) is holding an international event on the African continent.

  1. Before yⲟu sell, recycle, ߋr get rid of уour old jewelry, consider evеrything you
    haνe. Afteг you figure out what ʏߋu must recycle,
    it’s ab᧐ut time tо find out what іt reaⅼly iѕ
    worth. Τhis is not tⲟ say that more ckstly display necessarily wiⅼl sepl mߋre jewelry compared tⲟo a
    lowr cost display, Ƅut ultimately ʏou do pay
    for tһe qualitty yoᥙ obtain, and а toⲣ
    quality display ᴡhile using proper color scheme canno doubt sell m᧐rе jewelry
    than the usual lower quality display ᴡhich hass a pօorly chosen oг alⅼ wһite color scheme.

  2. Bonuses on slots online arre another big draw to players and the ones elsewhere.
    Bingo, poker, casino slots and bblackjack
    are some with thhe most widely used games. Betting is not only placing what you would like, butt should bbe controlled too.
