Just wanted to share the phone call I got from Greenwich University…
Its like Deja Vu.Â
The lastÂ timeÂ when we participated and got qualified for Zone finals was – the first time ever we were invited to participate in HEC Inter-University Sports Games in 2003-04.Â There were only three teams from our zone who had agreed to participate, therefore, the matches wereÂ held on League format – Karachi University (the host), Urdu Federal University, and Textile Institute of Pakistan.Â As expected, we lost to the Defending Champions of Sindh (Karachi University), butÂ not before telling them that TIP had arrived to the HEC organizedÂ sporting arena.
The next game scheduled was with Urdu Federal University.Â Since they failed to show-up at the sport we got a walk-over i.e. without a single serve being played… Thus we had “qualified” for Islamabad as the second team from our zone.Â Now, being entrants without match practice, coach,Â game kits, timing of the events at Islamabad and shortage of adequate funds, it wasÂ concluded to conserve our energiesÂ on events within TIP andÂ restrict participation till localizedÂ inter-university events only. Thus, we skipped from participating at Islamabad.Â
We are back inÂ a similarÂ position, but this time, after playing and winning both the league games.Â Finals are on Friday 3pm at the Greenwich University against Mehran University.
If the team is willing to play the finals, will you come and support?
