Written By Unknown on Jumat, 11 Januari 2013 | 22.23

MUMBAI: In order to bring sports back into the lives of people living in an open space-starved city, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is planning to encourage sports activities in playgrounds across the city. In a meeting held on Thursday, the BMC called civic body officials who are interested in sports and officials from the Maharashtra State Sports Authority. It was decided that more than 150 hectares of land, comprising 170 playgrounds in the city and suburbs, will be used for sporting activities and a sports cell will be developed in every ward.

"The concept is to develop the existing playgrounds in the city and start sports activities on them. For this, we will take the help of municipal employees who are involved in sports activities and sports teachers from civic schools," said a senior civic official.

This step has been taken along the lines of the state's policy to encourage sports activities in the city and set up sports centres at the district and taluka levels.

The BMC is hoping that this will help locals realize the importance of open spaces in their respective areas, which will prevent misuse or encroachments on such playgrounds.

A core committee will be formed by the civic administration , which will manage and run the sports centres . At least 24 centresone in each civic administrative ward—will be a part of BMC's sports cell. The centres will be responsible for developing different sports activities, athletics as well as indoor and outdoor games for the citizens. The committee will work in tandem with local NGOs and corporators in the different areas to develop the centres.
