Cycling in curriculum
Varsity plans course on Guwahati velodrome
The Rupnath Brahma Cycle Velodrome in the Tepesia Sports Complex is finally set to be utilised with the Lakshmibai National University of Physical Education proposing to introduce cycling as a subject in its academic curriculum.
The university’s Guwahati campus has committed the CAA to introduce the subject in the third year curriculum of the four-year course. The university’s academic curriculum includes basics in almost all the major sports disciplines like football, cricket, basketball, hockey, volleyball, badminton and table tennis. The introduction of the subject will not only ensure utilisation of the velodrome, which has been lying unused since the 33rd National Games was held here in February 2007, but the infrastructure will also thus be maintained.
Tepesia archery range
The Chatra Sing Teron archery range in the Tepesia Sports Complex on the city’s outskirts to promote the sport better. The range was developed for the 33rd National Games held in February. If the proposed academy materialises, it will be the second of its kind in eastern India after the Tata Archery Academy in Jamshedpur. Eastern India is a prime talent pocket for the sport. As archery is not on the board’s list of disciplines, introducing it in promotional activities must precede the proposed takeover.
In the outskirts of Guwahati, eighth the hills of Meghalaya as a backdrop, is the Sonapur Sports Complex at Tepesia. This complex is an hour’s drive from the Guwahati General Post Office. With wide approach roads and surrounded by greenery and hills, this complex is of international standards.
