Kabaddi is one of the most popular games in South Asian countries including India, Bangladesh and South Korea. India's roots with Kabaddi run deep, with historical evidence of the game being played since ancient times.

Kabaddi isn't for the faint-hearted. It's a high-intensity sport that not only tests your physical stamina and endurance but also your mental toughness. The repetitive chant of "Kabaddi, Kabaddi" during the game isn't just a strategy – it's a workout for your lungs, improving your lung capacity with every raid. Beyond the physical benefits, Kabaddi is a potent stress buster, a mood-lifter, and a catalyst for endorphin secretion.

In recent times, Kabaddi has gained immense popularity due to the launch of the Pro Kabaddi league and generated record viewership in the country.  However, kabaddi faces stiff competition from various international sports, and securing funding and identifying sponsorship opportunities remains a significant hurdle in promoting its popularity within local communities.

Here, at Townsol, we are discussing about promoting different sports in our local districts. Let’s start sharing your ideas to raise awareness about kabaddi in our community in this thread. 

Food for thought 

  • Can we create local-level development programs and awareness campaigns for Kabaddi to nurture budding talents and raise awareness among people to encourage participation?
  • Can we have training camps that can be mentored by Pro Kabaddi league players to ensure good talent gets good mentors?
  • Can we work on developing and improving Kabaddi facilities in our district, including the construction or maintenance of Kabaddi courts or grounds?
  • Can we look at establishing good sporting academies or schools at district level to ensure children with potential get the right guidance, mentorship, infrastructure and diet to excel in sport of their choice?
