The Hall President, Mr. Samuel Osei, on his part, attributed the success attained at the games to the motivation the team received from the Management of the Hall at the beginning of the semester when it was presented with sporting equipment worth several thousands of Ghana cedis to help prepare them for this feat.

The competition, organised by the Sports Directorate of UEW, saw all five traditional halls of the University namely: Simpa, Ghartey, Kwegyir Aggrey, University, and Ajumako halls competing for honours. All traditional halls presented men and women teams for volleyball, table tennis, soccer, badminton, goalball, handball, basketball, and netball. Simpa Hall paraded 145 sportsmen and women and ten officials for the games. 

The annual games are the high point of the University's sporting activities, providing an opportunity to choose competent athletes to represent the University at the Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) games.
