The Li­ons Club (Dis­trict 323A2) will or­gan­ise a first-of-its-kind state-level Blind Cricket Tour­na­ment in the city. Eight teams from var­i­ous cities in the state will par­tic­i­pate in the tour­na­ment to be held on Novem­ber 23 and 24.

The event will be in­au­gu­rated in the pres­ence of renowned dig­ni­taries at 9am on the first day at Ra­jiv Gandhi Sports Com­plex, CBD Be­la­pur, and will con­clude on the sec­ond day at Ghatkopar Jolly Gymkhana around 4pm.

Cor­po­ra­tor Jayaji Nath, who is sup­port­ing the event, said, “Be­sides other sight-first re­lated ser­vice projects, this year, we, at Li­ons Club, are cre­at­ing a great plat­form, where en­thu­si­as­tic vis­ually-im­paired play­ers will meet and com­pete with each other. Eight teams from dif­fer­ent cities of Ma­ha­rash­tra will par­tic­i­pate.”

“We re­quest all to join and sup­port this in­no­va­tive project and make it a mem­o­rable one. It is a small at­tempt to heal the world,” said Nath.
