Kharadi has a rich culture of sports with many enthusiastic and talented players scattered across the area. Numerous cricket championships on small scales are carried out across the area but these events fail to bring out the true potential of players as they often go unnoticed. Thus to bring these scattered talents together, Surendras Pathare Foundation hosted an Inter-city Cricket Match for all its citizens of all age groups.
This tournament was inaugurated by the auspicious hands of Surendra Baapusaheb Pathare and Baapusaheb Patahre and is the 1st ever day-night tournament being conducted on a scale this big under the banner of Cricket Event: ‘SPF Championship 2021’. The championship was a wholesome cricket tournament that spanned for 40 days and spread across 108 societies in Kharadi with 1000 + participants in the Men, Women and Children’s teams. The Championship 2021 victors were-
- Team Greensville Panther in the men category,
- Team Warriors in the women category and
- Team Gera North in the kids’ category
Though these three teams have won the tag of SPF Championship, we all gained a lot from this tournament as it gave everyone innumerable moments of joy & moments to cherish forever. Over the course of this tournament, people have developed a strong bond of unity as they shared equal determination and equal goals. Our Surendra Baapusaheb Pathare himself played a match during the grand finale of the tournament to encourage the teams. The tournament was a tremendous success and it is thanks to all the participants for making it so. Sports is the universal language of friendship and we were blessed to see it do wonders on and off the field.
A huge thanks to all our sponsors, VTP Realty and Vendakin along with our educational partner – Euro School, banking partner – Bank of Baroda, food and beverage partner – Gagan Sweets and our Cricket Net sponsor – Mr Pravin Niraj. It would not have been possible to make this event so grand and so successful without all your immense support.
