Sports Event on 13th October 2018

According to a recent report by the World Health Organization (WHO), India is the most depressed Nation of the world, followed by China and the US. The major reason is the ‘lifestyle’ of the people these days which is certainly devoid of any physical activity. Participation in organized sports offers the chance to enhance physical and social skills and help people stay fit and away from despondency. Keeping this in view, the Sports Club of Jaipuria School of Business (JSB), under the aegis of the Centre for Creativity and Innovation organized a one-day Intra-College Sports Event on 13th October 2018 for the PGDM students. The objectives were to develop in the students a sporting spirit and providing them a venue to display their physical prowess. The outdoor sports events were conducted at the Institute’s playground and the indoor events in the activity hall.

The sports events kicked off with the Cricket Match wherein the students showcased a lot of energy and sportsman spirit. After this exciting start, the various events lined up for the day quickly progressed. Students participated in Volley Ball, 100 Mt. Race, Table Tennis, Carom, Chess, and Badminton.

JSB always promotes the participation of girls in almost all the activities that take place in the Institute. Following the same spirit, the girl students also participated in all the games and proved their mettle.

The campus was full of life throughout the day with different games taking place all through. The whole campus was abuzz with excitement. Later, during the closing ceremony, the Director, Dr. SK Mahapatra awarded the winners with gift hampers and certificates and congratulated all the participants for their enthusiastic participation in the sports event. He, further, urged all the students to keep working hard with the same spirit in extra-curricular activities and in academics as well.
