PUNE: Massive response of Kabaddi clubs from Pune district has forced the organisers of Pune League Kabaddi to add two teams each in men’s and women’s competition for the 2018 edition, which will be held at the Boxing Hall of Balewadi Sports Complex from July 19 to 22.
As much as 550 men and 130 women kabaddi players reported for the selection trials that were held on Sunday at the Weightlifting Hall of the Sports Complex.
The 2018 edition of Pune League Kabaddi is being organised as part of the birthday celebration of Ajit Pawar, President of the Maharashtra Olympic Association.
“We have decided to increase the number of teams in both men and women so that we could accommodate as many players as possible,” said Baburao Chandere, Vice-President of Maharashtra State Kabaddi Association.
Consequently, men will have eight-team competition as against six last year and women will have six.
The training camp for the Pune League Kabaddi will be held at the competition venue from Friday to July 18, informed Chandere.
