Indian Games, Auckland in association with Supreme Sikh Society of New Zealand will host its fourth edition of sports tournament and family fun day at Takanini Gurudwara Sports Complex on Sunday, February 14.

Indian Games will be hosting football and volleyball tournaments with several registered teams from in and around Auckland and will have different activities for all age group members of the community.

Speaking with the Indian Weekender organiser of the event, Amarinder Singh said the purpose of Indian Games is not just to promote sports games and local sportsmen and women, but also get families and communities under one roof and have a great family fun event.

“We have planned sprint for children under 11, fun activities for children, racing for senior citizens, musical chair for women, and different games for all attendees at the event,” Amarinder Singh said.

The event earlier scheduled to be held at Bruce Pullman Park was moved to Takanini Gurudwara Sports Complex in a last-minute venue change.

“We are organising Indian Games in collaboration with Supreme Sikh Society and at its newly built sports complex which has an amazing turf for football, racing events, cricket, volleyball and playground for the children,” Mr Singh said.

The event starts at 8 a.m. and goes until six in the evening. At least 500 people, excluding sportsmen and women participating in the tournament, are expected to attend the day-long event.

“We have some really good awards and prizes for the winner such as gold ring for musical chair winner, gift cards and vouchers, t-shorts for junior football winning team, school bags for winners in children racing, sports shoes for over senior citizens’ racing winners and of course medals and trophies for sports tournaments,” Mr Singh added.

Food and beverage arrangements have also been made for the visitors at the event at the Takanini Gurudwara Sports Complex.
