Sports in Trichy
As the saying goes, universities, colleges, schools and other educational institutions in Tiruchirappalli offer greater importance to sports and games-related activities. The students are encouraged with essential sports facilities in Tiruchirappalli and allowed for representations at college, district and national-level competitions and tournaments.
It is important to mention that the most-recent trend among the students in the city is trying a hand in gymnastic exercise. This is a wonderful sign that people are now shining at optional athletics. Nevertheless, lack of infrastructure and professional coaches are a big concern. In the beginning, there was a half-hearted reception received from the students.
Lately, gymnastics is advancing in popularity among the students. A few educational institutions went on to appoint professional coaches to groom their students and encourage them to participate in competitions.
