Inter-House Table Tennis Competition

Competition breeds excellence!
It has been a dream for the Founder of the Atmiya Vidya Mandir: H.D.H. Hariprasad Swamiji Maharaj that there be an environment of keen competition and yet true sportsmanship in the school. One could easily witness that dream manifest during the inter-house table tennis competition that took place on the 9-10 July 2010 at Atmiya Vidya Mandir.
The cheering and backing up of the fellow housemates, the anxious shouts of the house teachers, the disappointments due to some bad shots and the excitement due to some shots by the players and overall a very high-energy, thrilling, suspense-packed competition was witnessed in the table tennis court in the basement of the Admin building.
This was the second inter-house competition of the year and turned out to be an awesome clash of the titans, literally!

Satyam House turned out to be the overall winners including both the Junior (Classes 6-7) as well as the Senior (Classes 8-9-10-11) categories.
Jilbhai Patel of Class 7 and Harshbhai Sarda of Class 8 were the champions in the respective categories.
Sundaram House were the runner-up in the competition followed by the Shivam House at the third place and Suhradam House at fourth.
Having said that, actually it was Excellence and the Courage of all the students that won the competition…..and we look forward to many such victories.

Do come along!
