All India Civil Services Kabaddi Tournament 2014-15, to be held at Rajiv Gandhi Indoor stadium in Puducherry between October 8 and 10, 2014.
The tournament is being organized by Central Civil Services Cultural and Sports Board in collaboration with government of Puducherry. Each team will have 14 members: 12 players, one manager and one coach.
States/UTs and regional sports boards are requested to consider entering their teams for the tournament, according to the circular issued by Central Civil Services Cultural and Sports Board to state chief secretaries and chairmen of all regional sports boards.
Any dress code for the game? Yes, the circular says, all teams should wear one colour depicting the names, and any team exhibiting logos or names of offices/team other than given in the entry form will be disqualified.
IAS officer G Ragesh Chandra, working as secretary in the government of Puducherry, is one of the nodal officers organizing the Kabaddi tournament for civil servants.
In fact, the recently-launched Pro Kabaddi League has turned hugely successful, and it is widely speculated that a woman’s Pro Kabaddi League would be launched soon.
Will there be a ladies’ version for the civil services edition too? For now, just say it aloud “Kabaddi-Kabaddi”.
