JRD Tata Sports Complex, the venue for the event
Love to win gets a whole new definition.
Come Saturday, Tata Steel employees will team up with their spouses to display the power of two in five diverse sporting disciplines.
Tata Steel sports department, which will host a unique event for employees and their better halves at JRD Tata Sports Complex from 3pm on August 24, hopes to push the culture of fitness among couples.
So, there are activities such as netting a basketball, aiming at cricket stumps and skipping together.
Participants will be divided into two categories—below 40 years and above 40 years The couple that earns the maximum points in each category will be declared winner.
“Sports is a great stress-buster. Women should not stay busy with household chores all the time. They should also enjoy sports, which will keep them healthy,” a Tata sports department official said.
Couples participating in the event will also have to stick to a dress code — track pants/shorts, tees and sports shoes. They will also have to bring their own skipping ropes and reach the venue 15 minutes before the start.
The response has been sporting so far.
“Till Thursday afternoon we received 40 entries. We expect more,” said Avinash Kumar, manager (events) of the sports department, adding that Thursday was the last day to register. “No spot entries please,” he added.
Tata Steel sports department conducts inter-divisional and inter-departmental sports events for employees.
