Sporting activities serves an important purpose in ones day to day life. Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj teaches us that by engaging in a physical activity, it strengthens ones physical body and develops a sense of enthusiasm amongst players and supporters.
Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Academy of Sports organised a football tournament on Monday 28th August 2023. On the morning of the late summer bank holiday, over 100 boys and girls aged between 5-45 years old made their way to Silver Jubilee Park to participate in this tournament. Following a quick briefing by the event leads and introduction to the teams for the day, the action kicked off with the round-robin stage. Soon after, the top teams in each category progressed to the main competition’s knockout stage. With the finals under way, the knocked out teams and other supporters cheered on from the sidelines. Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj made an unexpected and memorable visit, giving darshan to all those who attended the tournament.
The tournament concluded with an awards ceremony, whereby the winners and runners-up in each category were presented with trophies. Special recognition was also given to the leading goal scorers in each category and these players were awarded a golden boot trophy for their incredible efforts.
