Aakanksha N BhardwajTribune News ServiceJalandhar, July 16Dedicated to the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev, the Sports Department is going to organise the sub-division level ‘national style’ kabaddi tournaments here from July 18 to 20 and ironically, the department doesn’t have its own kabaddi coach in the district despite the fact that kabaddi has been closely associated with the state.
As per information, department officials have written to the authorities concerned about the requirement of the coach for long.
It has been around three years since the district lacks a kabaddi coach and any kabaddi championship or tournament has not been organised since then.
Regarding the tournament, the officials said in the absence of a departmental coach, help of community coaches or those from kabaddi associations will be taken.
But in the name of staff, there is only a coach but no lifeguards.
