Inter House Carrom Competition 2013-14

The only downside of rain is no outdoor sports, but that encourages the indoor sports. There are few indoor games which are very exciting as well as can match excitement of any outdoor sports. Carrom certainly fits that category. Students of Atmiya Vidya Mandir enjoyed the first ever Inter House Carrom Competition in the second half of July 2013.

Although carrom is played regularly at AVM, this was the first occasion when the competition was held. Announcement of the competition created a buzz around the school and the presence of obvious excitement was felt amongst the students from all classes.

The competition was divided into three categories: Sub-junior, Junior and Senior.

Students were supposed to take part in pair and compete amongst themselves to be shortlisted from their respective houses for the knockout rounds. After a few days of practice sessions and preliminary rounds, four teams from each of the houses were selected in each category.

Hemant sir and Kalpesh sir organised the competition very effectively. All the other sports teachers also helped in organizing the first inter house sports competition of the year. The location was the activity hall, first floor in Junior Hostel. The matches for the third places and the finals were held on 20th July. Here is a brief summary of the competition.

In the Sub-junior category, Satyam house grabbed the first and the third place, while Sundaram house took the second place.

In the Junior category, Satyam house again won the finals as Suhradam house took the second and the third places.

In the Senior category, Shivam house broke the domination of Satyam house and won that category. While Sundaram house took the second place, Suhradam house got the third place.
