TAFE Sports and Recreation Club’s Annual General Meeting for the year 2019 was held recently amidst a lot of fun-fare. This is an annual event that brings together all the club members and recognizes the winners of the various contests and tournaments that were hosted by the club that year. The new office bearers of the club took charge for the upcoming term, during this meeting. This event also witnessed various music and dance performances by the employees and an open forum was organized for all members to discuss and share their suggestions for club.
The origin of this club dates back to the year 1960, when the Former Chairman, A. Sivasailam, wished to create a recreational platform for the employees of the company. As a Chief Patron of the club, he established the ‘TAFE Club’. In the year 1968, this officially became the ‘TAFE Sports and Recreation Club’ with around 30 members being part of it. Our Chairman Ms. Mallika Srinivasan took over as the chief patron of this club in the year 2012.
Now, every year the club organizes sports tournaments, trips and movie outings among other recreational activities. 2018-19 was a key year for the club which saw over 100 new enrollments and a series of tournaments including cricket, futsal, badminton and carom. Apart from sports events, the committee also organized a movie outing and holi festival celebrations.
The club, which will witness the Golden Jubilee celebrations this year, now has over 260 members.
