World Kabaddi Day being celebrated in Haryana

World Kabaddi Day is being celebrated every year on March 24, since 2019. This year World Kabaddi Day was celebrated in India at Tau Devi Lal Indoor Stadium, Panchkula, Haryana.

HIPSA (Holistic International Pravasi Sports Association), along with an organisation named World Kabaddi, jointly organized this year’s event. An MOU recently signed between HIPSA and the Government of Haryana, for globally promoting Kabaddi, was one of the main reasons to choose India as a venue and Haryana in particular, for the event.

 

The Guinness World Record attempt was for ‘Most players in a Kabaddi exhibition match’. While Guinness had set the record benchmark for 84 players to break the record, the organizers had challenged an attempt for 154 players. The attempt began at 11 am today, in the presence of adjudicators from the Guinness team, and after three hours of continuous play, the record was finally broken at 2 pm with a participation of 128 players as declared by the Guinness adjudicator, Swapnil Dangarikar. The Governor of Haryana, Bandaru Dattatreya was the Chief Guest and the Guinness World Record certificate was presented to the Governor by the Guinness team.
