National-level Kabaddi tournaments location

Kabaddi is a combative sport in which each side has seven players. The main goal of the game is to score points by raiding the opponent’s court and touching as many defensive players as possible in a single breath. The game lasts 40 minutes, with a 5-minute intermission between halves.

The game has been played in various forms since prehistoric times. Since 1930, the modern Kabaddi game has been popular in India and other parts of South Asia. In 1950, the All India Kabaddi Federation was established to oversee the game’s promotion. In 1952, the Senior National Championship was established.

The Amateur Kabaddi Federation of India (AKFI) was formed in 1972. It is affiliated with the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and aims to popularise the game in India and neighbouring Asian countries.

The proposed calendar for the National Kabaddi Championships has been prepared and distributed to all parties in accordance with the order dated 06.01.2022 of the Hon’ble Delhi High Court in W.P. (C) No. 8915/2019 and related matters.
