Eluru: The district-level municipal school games and sports tournament began at Alluri Seetharamaiah stadium here on Tuesday. Mayor Shaik Noorjahan flagged off the tournament.
Speaking on the occasion, she said that the government had been conducting the tournament to encourage students in sports apart from academics.
The sports would help in infusing mental stamina and physical strength in students. A total of 500 students from different municipalities of the district had been taking part in the tournament in a dozen categories.
The talented sports persons would be selected for district-level sports meet to be held at the same venue on November 5 and 6. The winners would be given certificates and mementoes.
Commissioner Mohana Rao said that sports would be helpful to students to score in academics also.
