Sewa Women’s Cricket (SWC) event, held on September 23 at Fowler Park, Cumming, GA, began later than planned due to rain. Sewa International volunteers diligently prepared the ground, ensuring it was safe for the players.
The tournament received an overwhelming response and was efficiently conducted by match referees Manoj Sharma and Vijay Vaghela, along with other dedicated volunteers. Six teams participated in the contest: Wonder Women, Desi Smashers, Firebirds, Girl Rangers, Magic Makers, and Wildbrooke Warriors. The competition was intense, with the Wonder Women team clinching the winner’s trophy.
The tournament’s success can be attributed to the efforts of SWC lead, Neetu Chauhan; SWC manager, Pallavi Panthri; STC Vani Gaddam; and other volunteers.
Additionally, a pickleball sporting event took place on September 16 at Sharon Park, Cumming, GA. The event commenced with prayers to Lord Ganesha and the traditional lighting of the lamps. The finals, held on October 7, were very challenging with the finalists delivering a hard-fought victory.
This event marked the first introduction of pickleball in Sewa’s sports events and was organized by the sports team led by Chauhan, Gaddam, and Panthri; and coordinated by Ragupathy Annamalai, Sushma Amirineni, and Jigisha Shah.
In the doubles category, Hema and Jyoti emerged as the pickleball winners, with Hema also securing victory in the singles finals.
