Picture a sport that's as unique as it is exhilarating, that’s skating roll ball for you. Born from the creative spark of a physical education teacher, Mr. Raju Dabhade, Pune, this  is an indigenous sport of India. It is a mesmerizing fusion of roller skating, basketball, handball, and throwball and is played between two teams consisting of 12 players. Within a short span of time, skating roll ball has gained immense popularity and is now played in more than 50 countries.

Playing skating roll ball offers many amazing health benefits. It improves cardiovascular fitness, agility, and balance. It's a low-impact wonder that builds strength and enhances coordination. Skating roll ball is not just a sport; it's a fun, effective ticket to a healthier you. 

It's still in its infancy in the country, constrained by the limited infrastructure, lack of awareness, and the shadow of more established sports. Moreover, skating roll ball is an expensive game, where the cost of necessary equipment and training can be a hurdle for families with modest resources.

With this forum post, we invite Townsol members to share their ideas to promote Skating roll ball in your district.

Food for thought

  • Can we organize awareness campaigns in schools, colleges, and local communities to educate people about the Skating roll ball sport and its benefits?
  • Can we work on improving or developing the necessary infrastructure and equipment for learning Skating roll ball in the community?
  • Can we explore opportunities for sponsorship from local businesses, corporations or government grants to secure funding for equipment, facilities, and events?
