“In order to achieve positive results, one must work for them, not hope for them.”

Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day, and that’s the way Basketball is.

Sports, over the years, have etched a special place in our lives. It has become an indispensable part of our lives, and therefore, Hindustan International School organized an Intra School Basketball Tournament on 22 July 2023 in the grounds of Padur Campus.

Six teams(boys and girls)of Hindustan International Schools, Guindy, Karapakkam and Padur competed with each other . The participants were duly briefed about the rules of the league game. We witnessed good sportsmanship by all the players which was the best part of the day.

The Tournament witnessed a lot of close contests with each team jumping and leaping to score baskets. It was a closely fought competition wherein each team put in their best foot forward. Lay-ups were met with intense blocks as the players sweated it out in the courts. Mr Johnson Mathew, Dean Academics, Hindustan International Schools and Sports HOD’s from KCG College and HITS, Padur graced the occasion.

Mr. PrasannaVenkatesh, IOB Manager and International Basketball Player was our Chief Guest who presided over the valedictory ceremony and distributed the prizes to the winners. He motivated the students by sharing his experiences in his field of expertise. He encouraged them to believe in themselves and never stop playing games at any stage of life as it keeps our mind fresh, stress free and peaceful always.

The Tournament had ended with HIS Padur clinching the Overall winners as HISP Boys and Girls won in all the matches they played. HIS Karapakkam took over the Runners Up trophies for Girls and Boys team.

The games were exhilarating and everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It represents what we learn as Hindustan Warriors, participating is more important than winning or losing. And the spirit of true sportsmanship and unity as a team! Congratulations to all the participants for a brilliant game with good team spirit!
