The annual kabaddi tournament took place this past weekend. It was a fun event with lots of participation from both the players and the spectators. This year, due to an increased number of intermediate students, there was also an intermediate competition, allowing the younger students to participate fully. The tournament was so fun that many students continued to play even after the official matches were over.
