Sikh games will feature the popular kabaddi

KABADDI fans are in for a treat next year when the 2009 Sikh Games come to Coffs Harbour.

The games will feature soccer, cricket, tug of war, athletics, netball, volleyball and, of course, kabaddi. Kabaddi is a regional sport of India with two teams of five players, where they send the raider into the other team's half to tag as many players as possible. T

he raider must not take a breath during the raid, and must prove it by constantly repeating the word 'kabaddi' while on the raid.

On Sunday the president of the Australian National Sikh Sports and Cultural Council (ANSSAC), Mahabir Grewal and secretary Jasbir Randhawa visited Coffs Harbour to be briefed on the preparations for the games.

The organising committee is looking for donations and sponsorship for the games. If you would like more information about donating or sponsoring the games please contact
