Srinagar: A large number of girls from the Kashmir Valley participated in the  Chess and Carrom Championship which was organized at the  Women’s College in Srinagar city recently, media reports said.

The girls showcased their talents in the event.

The championship was organised by the Sports wing of the college in collaboration with the Directorate of Youth Services and Sports of Jammu and Kashmir. Indoor sports including chess and carrom always conclude in a limited time, and hence girls can manage their time easily to participate in these championships, reports ANI.

“The benefit of these games is that we do not get any injuries. In other games, there is a chance to get injuries. They are played from the mind. The more we focus on the games, we will get a chance to go forward,” a player told the news agency.

Another player said, “There is a lot of misconception about these indoor games. Many think that there will not be a career in these games. People now know that these games are played at National and International levels. There are World Cup matches also.”
