Kodava Family Hockey tourney to be held in April   -1

Madikeri: The Kodava Family Hockey Tournament, which was cancelled this year owing to the recent catastrophe that hit the pristine district of Kodagu, will be held in a grand manner, said Paikera Kalaiah.

He said that the event which has been successfully held over the last 22 years was cancelled this year, but now the organisers have decided to conduct the event as many families have urged for the same.

Addressing a news conference, Kalaiah said that about 100 teams are expected to join the tournament, which will be held during last week of April, either at AstroTurf or at Kakotuparambu grounds under the name 'Coorg Inter-Kodava Family Championship-2019'.

He said that about 50 per cent of the proceedings of the tourney will be given away for the cause of the flood victims in the district. Each team participating in the tourney will have to pay a sum of Rs 1,000 as entry fee, while the families which have been affected by the floods will have free entry.
