The rest were, the University of Mines and Technology (UMAT), University for Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR), University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) among others.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, Professor Joseph Ampiah Ghartey , Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast applauded the various institutions for exhibiting good sportsmanship during the games.

He also expressed delight with the level of talent on display adding that Local Organising Committee (LOC) did a great work with organisation despite the short notice they had at their disposal.
