The Sports Program at Bhagwan Parshuram Institute of Technology is designed to serve student interest in different sports and recreational activities. These interests can be competitive, recreational or instructional in nature; students may represent the College in inter-university competition or intra-branch league activities such as tournament play, training, instruction, and social interaction (recreational) events. Keeping this in view, the institute has invested heavily in creating good sports infrastructure.
Following are the facilities provided in sports at BPIT
Cricket is a religion in India and cricketers, no less than gods. The infrastructure in the institute related to the game includes a cricket ground with mat-pitch and all cricket gears. There are 2 tournaments held every year:
Inter – Branch Cricket Tournament (Odd Semester)
BCL (BPIT Cricket League) – (Even Semester) – This is similar to IPL
Another favorite of the students, football enjoys the reputation of being widely played and watched sport in the world. The institute has a well maintained football ground for practice matches and inter-branch competitions.
Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players each are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules. This is a very popular game amongst the students. The institute has well maintained volleyball court where the students practice the sport, play friendly matches as well as inter-branch tournaments.
Basketball is played by most of the students. The institute also encourages students to actively take up team games and participate in inter branch competitions to improve their game and at the same time to keep up their spirit of sportsmanship. We have recently re-laid the basketball court so that it provides a smooth, unobstructed surface assisting a consistent bounce.
Shot Put is another athletic field event that involves throwing the heavy metal ball as far as possible. This metal ball is commonly referred to as “the shot”.
Discus Throw is one among the many popular athletic field events that is played with a lot of spirit and pride. The athlete throws heavy disc shaped sports equipment in an attempt to mark a farther distance than his/her competitors.
The long jump is another track and field event. In this event athletes combine speed, strength and agility and attempt to leap as far as possible from a take-off point as a “horizontal jump”.
Table tennis also known as ping-pong is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight ball back and forth using a table tennis racket on a hard table divided by a net at the middle. The game is very fast paced and demands quick reactions. This game helps in developing concentration.
Chess is a reflection of life creatively engaged and for the creative mind, it is more than a game of conquest, conflict and competitive skill. The institute has adequate no. of chess boards to satisfy the playing instinct of the geniuses.
Carom plays a vital role in relaxing and refreshing young minds. And, to cater to the needs of these ‘fast and furious with fingers’ freaks, the institute has all the provisions required for the leisure game.
