Palam Sports Club: In West Delhi, a Kabaddi Bastion For Women
At Palam Sports Club in Dwarka, West Delhi, coach Neelam Sahu ensures her wards are trained not just in kabaddi, but also in values that would make them successful outside of the sport. The all-women kabaddi club, where girls between the age of 10 and 26 train to make a mark in the sport, has produced many national and international players since it began in 1995. Coach Sahu feels with the right kind of support, the club could churn out more champion players. She is optimistic about the future of the women's game in India as more and more government departments, including the armed forces, have started recruiting female athletes to form professional outfits.
