We set up the Grange Kabaddi Group with funding from Awards for All. This was set up at Grange School on Rochdale road, Oldham before it became an academy.
The project gave four of us the coaching qualification in the international rules of Kabaddi. The 4000 year old sport is the national sport of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
We go into schools around the country to run workshops on this sport. One of our coach, Moinul Islam has gone onto developing and delivering the sport as a GCSE subject.
We have been accepted by the England Kabaddi Federation (EKF) who run the England Teams and we are setting up to represent the whole of the Northwest as Northwest Kabaddi Federation.
