It is day five of the 2022 East Africa Netball Club championship at the Kamwokya Community Sports grounds, Kampala city, Uganda on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

Four women games are lined up on the day with one match for the male.

A mouth-watering clash between two Ugandan clubs; Prisons and the tournament reigning champions National Insurance Corporation (NIC) will spice up the menu.

Both clubs have won their first three respective matches and booked their semi-final berths.

Now, the onus is on who tops the group A table tandings.  

The biggest battle will be upon the respective defence-lines on how to tame the proven goalshooters and goal-attackers.
