Ancient Indian Games (Khel) for Youth with Sneha Purohit

Area – Youth

Kho Kho – An Ancient Indian game of tag. A team sport with a twist. Originally played on chariots, but we shan’t be doing that! Still incredibly popular in India today.

Kabaddi – A contact team sport. The objective: for the player on offence, referred to as a “raider”, to run into the opposing team’s half, tag out as many of their defenders as possible, and return to their own half, all without being tackled by the defenders, and in a single breath. (Try saying that in a single breath!) Points are scored for each player tagged by the raider, while the opposing team earns a point for stopping the raider. An ancient game now with its own World Cup!

Other Ancient Indian Games will be played such as Shakti Parichay (strength battle), Sher Bakri (the tiger and goat) and Namaste to name a few! Come and join the fun – open to all abilities.
