Focus… Shoot!

Focus… Shoot!


The most awaited sports fiesta for undergraduates has commenced already. The 2016 Sri Lanka University Games (SLUG) officially started on 1st September and it’s time for a competitive and exciting game, netball. Fourteen teams are prepared to battle it out to grab the title of SLUG Netball Championship which will be held on 2nd and 3rd September at Wayamba University premises.

Seven energetic players using their tactics and quick moves to score a goal, dodging their opponents while defending them from scoring a goal is what the big picture of netball is. But still, the secret of the game which makes it nail biting are the planned moves, team work and focus of the players.

While counting the days, USJP girls led by W.M.N.S. Wijethunga, are getting ready to make a mark in history, looking forward to retain their position in the game this year too, bringing fame to their alma mater. With fingers crossed, thousands of supporters at J’pura are waiting eagerly to see them be the Sri Lanka Universities Netball Champions for the third consecutive year.

We at J’pura Flames wish good luck to our energetic netball team on their way to victory.
