Community Connect Scheme
Mar 14, 2014

Recently a scheme named Community Connect Scheme at was launched in New Delhi. The Community Connect Scheme has been launched with the objective of making various Sports Authority of India (SAI) Stadia multi-disciplinary to include sports as well as recreational facilities, so that the local communities can utilize them for recreation as well as overall health and fitness.

SAI has been utilizing the stadia for hosting District, State, National and International Sports events. It is also implementing the Come & Play Scheme encouraging the youth to utilize the stadia facilities to sharp their skills in the sports disciplines of their choice. This highly subsidised endeavour provides world class facilities along with training under the patronage of qualified Coaches.

To further exploit the underutilized spaces available in stadia, the Community Connect Scheme visualizes increased participation of the community, thereby increasing the footfalls in the stadia to make it a hub of sports and fitness activities.

In addition to the existing sports facilities available, facilities like Walking/Jogging Track, Cycling Track, Volleyball Courts, Cricket Nets, Billiards & Snooker, Fitness Centres, Aerobics, Yoga, Skating, Swimming Pools, Squash Courts, Chess Rooms, Bridge Rooms, Carrom etc. are being launched. There will be multiple choices of both indoor and outdoor recreational and sports facilities on offer.
