YMCA have always been pioneer in creating awareness of fitness and sports life for individuals especially in India. YMCA and Sports have always been talked about as one entity. Invention of the game of Basketball and volleyball has been two major contribution of YMCA to the field of sports world wide.
With this same vigor and love for sports as the founders of YMCA. The YMCA trainee at UTC Bangalore took up the challenge to give a new look to the abandon badminton court. The master mind of this initiative being Mr Jose Stanley, who has worked in YMCA’s own College of Physical education in Chennai. & Mr Samson Mathew who worked in Kollam YMCA, both have put their experiences in the field of sport to practical use.
After lot of hard work today in UTC we have a Badminton court which is completely different then what we had before. The line marking is done as per International standard with Nylon rope. The contribution of all departments of UTC and individuals are appreciable especially the sports and Games department headed by Mr John Pradeep who provided the financial support from sports fund, Mr Joby Joy hostel secretary for providing necessary permissions and all our hostellers who contributed their time and energy to make this initiative a grand success.
We the YMCA trainees wish all inmates of UTC hostel, many refreshing moments and wonderful experiences on this renovated court. You all are welcomed to pay a visit to the court and give your valuable suggestions
Congratulations to Jose and Samson “You have made a difference”
