The newly started Sports & Games Meet at the AscendersTech offices was a huge hit with one and all. We initiated the first of the monthly Sports & Games meet with a simple set of indoor and outdoor games on June 18, 2011. The B Wing premises were used primarily for Chess and Carrom tournaments. The common terrace was used for badminton, tennikoit and volley ball.
Soon the events turned into a frenzy of activities as a lot of people had signed up for all the games. Also the official games for the day were chess, tennikoit and carrom. The Ascenders soon found themselves moving back and forth from B Wing to the terrace and soon all the events were moved to the open terrace for convenience sake. The ‘unofficial’ games like badminton and volleyball too, found a lot of enthusiastic takers. The afternoon was soon filled with cheers and boos and many loud and funny wisecracks.
Refreshments were soon served in the open terrace and then the fun resumed.
The winners of First AscendersTech Internal Sports & Games Event:
- 1. Carrom – Tulsi & Ansar Basha (Winners)
Arun KTS & Aadhavan (Runners)
2. Chess – Deva (Winner)
Ansar Basha (Runner)

The prizes for the same will be distributed on the Annual Day Celebrations due on July 9th, 2011.
Seeing the terrific response from all the Ascenders, it has been decided to have a Sports & Games day on the third Saturday of every month. It has also been decided to include more games such as Frisbees, cricket etc.
The Sports & Games Co ordination Committee comprising of Deva, Faisal, Revathi & Tulsi will soon get things rolling in that direction.
