The students of IIM Ranchi have been swarming the newly constructed badminton court at its Khelgaon hostel premises. The Sports Committee of IIM Ranchi took an initiative to turn the students’ enthusiasm into a successful event in the form of badminton league.
It was a week-long fiesta culminating with a finale on Saturday, December 13th. The event consisted of games played across five categories – Mixed Doubles, Men’s doubles, Women’s doubles, Men’s singles and Women’s singles. Sudeep Godara and Ashita Dhir clinched the winners’ title in Mixed doubles category while Srikanth Bizza and Dilleswar Rao teamed up to win men’s doubles and it was Ankita Singh and Akanksha Gupta that formed the winning team in women’s doubles. Srikanth Bizza and Shri Sabari Kp got the numero uno positions in men’s and women’s singles events respectively. All the winners would be rewarded with a cash prize apart from certificates.
The students displayed great interest and zeal throughout the tournament. Not only the players, but all others also took time out from their busy schedules to cheer for the players and have the much-needed recreation. The Sports Committee of IIM Ranchi thanked all the participants and the audience for making the event a grand success. It promised on organizing many such exciting events in near future.
