The first round match between the two departmental teams was washed out and the organisers rescheduled it for today. Dhorpatan Club President Manbir Chhantyal said that TAC denied playing the match against APF today saying they had other important matches of the tournament. “The date of the match will be decided by tomorrow,” added Chhantyal.

In the day’s other matches, TAC defeated Shree Gaun Sports Development Committee 25-19, 25-11, 25-9 before the departmental side faced a 25-15, 25-15, 25-19 defeat against Tops HS School in their second match of the day.
