Autumn 2018 Marked the Way Forward!

Final volleyball match between Sooria and Rabia
Final volleyball match between Sooria and Rabia

As mentioned in our previous report, girls’ sports tournaments are gradually getting institutionalized as a sustainable process, however, insecurity and lack of financial resources are key challenges. Basketball was added to the series of competitions in spring – summer round of 2018 and fortunately, CPD was able to continue the competitions in both the fields (volleyball and basketball) in the autumn round as well. Luckily, a boys’ futsal tournament was also organized in autumn 2018 aimed at prevention of Gender Based Violence and using the hashtag #HeforShe. Inclusion of male members of communities has been proved effective in fighting street harassment and fighting to ensure the very basic right of women and girls to access public spaces, recreation, edutainment and assembly.

In the lines below, we summarize volleyball competitions of autumn round tournaments:

  1. Girls’ Volleyball Tournament:

In the volleyball field, 16 teams participated in the tournament, which was organized in double knock out system comprised of 28 matches happened from 7 to 27 October, 2018. Participating teams were as follows:

  1. Zainab Kubra
  2. Qari Neik Mohammad
  3. Al-Fath
  4. Rabia-e-Balkhi
  5. Sooria
  6. Sar Asiab
  7. Rabia
  8. Malalay
  9. Qala-e-Bakhtiar
  10. Maryam
  11. Durkhanay
  12. Ayesha-e-Durani
  13. Um-ul-Banin
  14. Sardar Kabuli
  15. Zarghoona
  16. Ab-ul-Qasim Firdawsi

Comparing this tournament with the one organized in spring-summer round, number of teams has increased from 10 to 16.

Result of the 20 days long competitions were as below:

  1. Team Rabia, the first (winner of the tournament);
  2. Team Sooria, the second (champion of the previous few rounds);
  3. Team Durkhanay, the third;
  4. And team Zainab Kubra, the forth.

Worth to mention that Ayesha-e-Durani girl high school hosted organizing the volleyball tournament of girls’ teams. As before, the tournament was organized in a professional way with opening and closing ceremonies that were attended by officials of different departments of MoE, National Olympics Committee, players, coaches, parents, teachers and students. Winners were awarded with cups, medals, gifts and appreciation letters and media coverage was provided by invited broadcast media. 

Details on other two tournaments (girls’ basketball and boys’ futsal) of the autumn round 2018 will be shared in next reports. We enthusiastically look forward to this year’s (2019) activities to get momentum to the already started initiatives.
