Dubai: Konkan Yuva, the youth wing of St Mary’s Church (Dubai), has announced its first traditional mega-sports fest ‘Khel Mhel-2019’. It will be a one-day outdoor fest held at the Sharjah Wanderers Sports Club in Sharjah, UAE on November 22 from 9 AM to 6 PM.
Since its establishment in 2005, Konkan Yuva has been the only Mangalurean youth organisation at St Mary’s Catholic Church (Dubai). The fest promises to be a day full of activities involving sports, music and entertainment for everyone. Family events such as a fancy fete, face painting, Housie-Housie and several other spot games will be organised. Adults can groove to the Konkani baila by DJ Shavin’ while younger adults can show off their muscle power at the ‘Tug of War’ event.
The festival is open to all the Catholics from the Konkan Coast as well as people with a UAE resident visa since skilled teams from different parts of the Emirates are expected to participate. The winning teams will be presented with attractive cash prizes and trophies.
The sports competitions will take place in two categories: "Inter-Parish" and "Open to all". Exciting games such as Tug of War (Dori Vodche), Treasure Hunt and Coconut Smash (Narl Podche) will be conducted.
In the Inter-Parish category, Pernal, Puttur, Loretto, Vamanjoor, Moodubelle, Uswas Shirva, Bajpe, Derebail, Surathkal, Ferar, Bantwal, and Neermarga parishes have already registered. Only 16 teams will take part in each category and they will be selected on a first-come-first-serve basis. Each team must have seven men and 12 women. A points table will be maintained for every game and the team with the highest points wins. Only six teams are allowed to take part in the ‘Voviyo’ competition.
The registration fee is AED 300 per team. Lunch will be provided for each participating team member.
