As we are witnessing that children now-a-days are getting devoid of outdoor games and activities which is making them physically and mentally idle. Therefore, outdoor games are very necessary for the growth of a child and to keep them healthy. This tournament is an effort to bring back the enthusiasm for outdoor games and activities.”
