To usher in communal harmony and to inculcate sportsman spirit amongst the youth of Tangmarg, a Cricket Tournament for both boys and girls was conducted by the Army at Tangmarg which was first of its kind in the area as it saw active participation of the girls with full support rendered by their parents.
A total of 16 boys’ teams and 04 girls’ teams from various villages of far flung and remote areas of Tangmarg participated in the tournament on league cum knock-out basis. The boys’ final was played between Warpora and Zaspora and girls’ final was pitched between Rahat Ghar and Army Goodwill School, Ziran in which all the finalist teams contested with great spirit and enthusiasm.
The civil administration and local population was highly appreciative of the Army’s endeavour to promote sports culture in the area involving both boys and girls for such constructive and encouraging activities.
The event culminated with distribution of prizes amongst the winners and runners up of the tournament. An interaction also took place with the youth wherein they thanked the Army for their continuous support in conducting such events.
