The Sports Committee of Bennett University organised a two-day inter-house tennis tournament, Rage of Racquets, on the 8th and 9th of February. The tournament, which featured both singles and doubles matches, saw the four houses - Might Boltz, Heroic Hearts, Super Spades, and Keen Kickerz - competing to clinch the victory.

“Although tennis isn’t a popular sport among the students of our college, through the inter-house tournament we attempted to encourage people to watch or even pick up the racquets. Altogether we received 30 entries, which is a step in the positive direction,” said Mohammed Almaz Ahmed, Tennis Team captain.

As the four-day annual sports festival, Sportikon, is around the corner, students are preparing themselves to put up a tough fight against rival colleges that will soon visit the campus.

“This tournament in some way allows us to prepare ourselves for the Sportikon. As I’ll be part of the BU line-up for Tennis, I want to discover what it is that I need to focus on,” said Ishaan Goel, a member of the Tennis team.

Compared to the registrations for boys, the girls’ matches saw only five entries. Sports Committee Secretary Kamakshi Singh commented, “For various reasons, girls who were active in sports during their high school stage quit it after joining college. Although I may not understand why, I am always on the lookout to motivate them to continue playing or trying out a new sport.”

Although there was immense participation from Heroic Hearts, students were waiting for the results and wanted their favorite house to win. This tournament not just only uplifted the spirits of the athletes but showcased how every student is enthusiastic to support their houses.
