The 2020 Singleton Matchplay Challenge has reached its climax with the final slated for this Saturday, 19th December 2020 at Entebbe Golf Club’s par-71 course.
Traditionally, the final would be held in July but the sports ban in March this year due to COVID-19 forced organizers to make necessary adjustments making the Fourth staging to happen in the final weekend before Christmas.
The final will be between the mixed pair of Diana Nambalirwa/Anthony Ndegwa and an all-male pair of Luwum Adoch/Innocent Nahabwe who are both chasing for a maiden victory.
In the first semi-final held recently, mixed pair of Diana Nambalirwa/Anthony Ndegwa beat a male team of Earnest Rukundo/Rogers Byaruhanga 8/7 while Luwum Adoch/Innocent Nahabwe beat fellow all-male pair of Oscar Ssemawere/Marvin Kagoro 2up.
Losing semi-finalists will also face off on Saturday in the 3rd/4th place playoffs.
The event’s platinum sponsor is Singleton whisky. Co-sponsors are; NCBA Bank Uganda, DSTV, Ekspresso, RwandAir, Serena Hotels, HTC, Bycentrics, Pinnacle Security, MARSH, Victoria Motors and Street Club (then host for the after party before Covid-19 happened).
