Hyderabad, Nov 2 Alienation  (PTI) In a novel way to promote sports culture in the city and put its vast sports infrastructure to optimum use, the Hyderabad civic body has a mobile app which educational institutions and individuals can book sports facilities in advance. “A user-friendly Application is prepared, whereby any school can book sports facility of GHMC online for the benefit of their students on a nominal cost basis?

The emphasis being on making use of the sports facility for the benefit of students, rather than to generate income out of the facility,” a Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) official said. The GHMC has 12 sports complexes, seven swimming pools, 521 playgrounds, and numerous other facilities. Though many school managements are not averse to encourage sporting activities among their children, the real concern is the unavailability of open spaces in the city, the official said.


Additionally, many fitness-conscious citizens are keen on taking up sports or some form of physical activity. The shortage of playgrounds and lung spaces in urban areas is a serious cause for concern and prime constraint in promoting sports and physical activity among the citizens, he said. This gave rise to “some out-of-box thinking” by GHMC to use its sports infrastructure, the official said.

According to the new policy, general citizens, including IT employees and businessmen, can use the facilities at staggered timings. Educational institutions can book the sports facilities on weekdays, and government schools can avail of the facilities free of cost every Friday, the official said. On weekends, the sports grounds, especially indoor stadiums, would be given to individuals or organizations on a nominal pay and play basis, he added. PTI SJR RS GK KHS KHS
