Woodball - the new sport on the rise in Uganda

Football, basketball and even baseball - and now woodball.

It's a game that was invented in Taiwan about 20 years ago and is starting to make inroads in Africa with its biggest following in Uganda.

The country is sending a team to the Woodball World Cup taking place in Malaysia this week.

The BBC's Catherine Byaruhanga has been giving the game a try in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.
