IUGs 2017| Table Tennis: All Set for Smash and Spin!

Even a blink of an eye would miss the shots and flips when the paddlers play at a rapid game. Over 13 universities are going to gather around the gymnasium of University of Ruhuna on 9th and 10th of September,2017 to take part in the Inter University Championship. University of Sri Jayawardanepura table tennis team notched up the overall victory at the SLUG 2016 and brought an immense pride to the USJP.

The most powerful adversary: Ruhuna, makes it home

Sometimes the adversary is not only your opposite team. Sometimes sports make us compete with things beyond our control. That is where the spirit of the games lies. The boys’ elle matches were off to a shaky start with rain pouring over Colombo. However, the University of Colombo hosted the matches where 12 teams competed against each other for gold.

 

InterUni Elle: Kelani Girls Score the Homerun

The gloomy skies of Colombo brightened up with the women’s power at the InterUni elle matches which commenced yesterday. The games were held in the grounds of University of Colombo, with the universities put into 4 groups, competing to be champions of the group scoring the most homeruns.

The Slow and Steady Wins the Game

Inter University Karate Championship came to an end at the Gymnasium of University of Sri Jayewardenapura on Sunday, 18th July, 2017. The medalists of 7 categories were decorated with medals. Day one was the Kata day and day two was for the Kumite. Kihon, Kata and kumite are the KS of Karate. Kihon means basics, Kata means form and Kumite means partner work. Karate is a highly complex art that takes many years to master and is a noble art of self-defense yet another beautiful sport.

Pera Lifts It to Supremacy Amid 8 New Records

It was a hectic day at University of Jaffna when all the weightlifters representing their Universities came to Jaffna on 11th of June, 2017 to meet their rivals in Weightlifting Championship of Inter University Games-2017. Eight newly established game records are not adequate to illustrate the excitement of the contending lifters. University of Peradeniya surpassed all other Universities to top the points table and lifter MGCSB Gunarathna was adjudged the best among the bests.

Solace to the Thumping Heartbeats

It was 9.00 am on 28th May 2017. Diyagama Mahinda Rajakpaksha stadium was heated up with university athletes attempting to put their victorious innings in the track and field events once again in day two. Track and field is a sport which includes athletic contests established on the skills of running, jumping for heights or distances and throwing. It normally measures individual performance except in the case of relays.  

Table Tennis Spins the Wayo Ground

Two or four players hitting a light weight ball back and forth across a table using a small racket is the picture that comes to my mind when talking about table tennis. The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net. Fast and quick responding player wins the match series. This is also called as ping pong as the small ball spinning back and forward, has to be balanced between the ping and the pong here. It is a fascinating game to the audience also. So there’s no any doubt for being table tennis, a wonderful game that is highly famous among university students.
