Day two of the ball games was full of Spikes, shorts, and throws for all the ball games, whistleblowing from several courts that some players got mistaken by the whistles from the nearby Court of Volleyball, Netball, or Handball. 

On the netball court, group matches pushed the day to 5 pm to determine those that had qualified for the Round of 16.

The men finished their group matches earlier than the women.

In group A, Kampala University and Hoima came through, Group B had Jinja School of Nursing and Kagando Nursing. Group C had Mildmay and Bwindi.

Group D brought Gulu COHES and Fort Portal COHES.

group E had UIAHMS and Masaka while Group F had Kitovu and Mbale COHES as qualified teams.

From the 6 groups, all the 16 teams could not be determined so the other 4 had to be picked from the best losers, considering the number of wins, goals scored, and those against. Villa maria, Kampala school of health sciences, Kagando Medical Lab and Ishaka qualified for the Round of 16.

On the women’s side, Uganda Christian Institute and Kagando qualified in group A, Group B had St. Francis and Kabale Comprehensive Nursing, UIAHMS and Bwera qualified in group E, group D had Kuluva and Mildmay, in group C; Gulu SOCO and Butabika qualified and in group F Jinja School of Comprehensive Nursing.

The officials found it hard to determine the other four teams to make up for the last 16, by close of day only three were determined and included; Kampala University, IUIU, and Hoima.

The challenge to determine the 16th team was difficult and it all rotated around three teams of Soroti School of Comprehensive Nursing who had one win and a small loss difference at 37/59 equaling a ratio of 0.627.

The other two were Villa Maria with also one win and a difference at 30/32 giving a ratio of 0.937, Bwindi had 19/84 giving a ratio of 0.226.
