The 3-day Sportive and Networking Event at Swarnabharati Indoor Stadium had Box Cricket League for students and corporate teams, a Badminton Tournament and a Business Quiz. It is being sponsored by My Dreamland, EVE 19 Sports Club, Vizag Sports Club and co-sponsored by Hotel LP Grand, The Business Quiz, Naturals, Aayushman Hospitals, AbsolinTM, and Sri Balaje Enterprises.
The sports fervour is riding high at the moment in Swarnabharati Indoor Stadium; the venue for the second edition of Vizag’s Sportive and Networking Event, which is taking place in the stadium from the 7th to 9th December.
Vizag Now decided to cover the Event, which aims to promote sports and sportive spirit among the people. The first day of the three-day event saw 9 student teams take part in the Vizag Box Cricket Challenge.
While a Men’s and Women’s Badminton Tournament was organised in the first half of the second day, which saw around 100 matches being played, with men’s singles being won by Manoj and women’s singles being won by Madhurya.
And in the afternoon of the same day, the Entrepreneurs’ Box Cricket League took place
between 8 corporate teams, which was won by GVMC, with Inspiredge IT solutions coming as runners up. The last day of the event i.e., today, a business quiz, which saw around 50 online registrations, is taking place just as we speak.
The event saw participation from a number of sports enthusiasts ranging from serious players to people just pursuing sports as a hobby – The youngsters Vivek Sampath (23) and S Nitesh (27), for instance, who participated in the badminton doubles event, play in the FCI club, and have played for the first time here. Meenakshi Dharmesh’s (41) story is quite different; she started playing badminton at the age of 35 and is an example of the fact that age is just a number if you have the heart for it.
