All you need to know about the Bits Pilani, KK Birla Goa organized sports carnival - Spree '16
BITS Pilani, K. K. Birla Goa is all set to bring to you Spree ’16, a sports carnival like no other; a celebration of sport and an opportunity for the fastest, strongest and the most skilled athletes from across the country to challenge their limits and emerge victorious. With a host of events that include regular events, as well as off-beat events, Spree can be expected to cater to every athlete. The regular events are further divided into gold and silver.
Major events include cricket, football and basketball. The cricket matches are held on a BCCI-maintained ground that has hosted several national level tournaments such as the Vijay Hazare Trophy, while the football matches are played on a top class field maintained by the Salgaocar FC. Add to those two excellent courts that see intensely fought matches every year during Spree, and we have a number of much-awaited Gold Event matches.
The Silver events include badminton, chess, carrom, squash, table tennis and lawn tennis. In keeping with the ever-changing nature of sport, Spree, too, has evolved and taken steps to beyond the usual definitions of sport. Spree now boasts of a wide range of offbeat events such as 3v3 Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, Pool, Gully Cricket, Kabaddi and Futsal. Spree aims to take these off-beat events to the national stage as well.
With top-class facilities and a habit of attracting the best sporting talent in India, Spree indeed stays through it's adage – ‘We Are Where Winners Tread’. Add that to the fact that we are based in Goa, one of the sporting hubs of India, our reach and growth as a sports festival is unparalleled in India.
And when our participants are done grunting it out in the fields, we present a plethora of events, activities and performances to relax with, this Spree. Angaraag Mahanta, popularly known as Papon, will be the headlining act, who, with his songs featured in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Hamari Adhuri Kahaani, is one of India's biggest musical and Bollywood names. Shows (and workshops) by premier skateboarding groups, and freestyle footballers will add to our carnival.
Spree will undoubtedly be one of the biggest events this March.
