15 Clans from Chicket, Virajpet have come together to organise 5-a-side (Rink Hockey) Tournament in Bangalore. The matches will be played from Jan 24 to 26 at the KSHA Stadium in Richmond Town. Speaking to Bangalore Mirror, K D Ganapathy said;
We are a team of 30 members from 15 different families of Chickpet in Virajpet. We call ourselves the Coorg Challengers Chickpet Association (CCCA). The families’ motive is to revive interest in hockey among Bangaloreans and donate the profit from these tournaments to orphanages and blind schools. Today, we are what we are because of hockey and we want to give back to the sport by instilling that spirit in as many youngsters as we can.
