Jamsetji Tata (1839-1904), founder of Tata Group, said it over 100 years ago: 'reserve large areas for football, hockey and parks'.
One Million Hockey Legs was invited at Tata Steel in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. It was great to see the enthusiasm for sports and youth development at the Tata company.
After a fruitful meeting former Indian Olympian Charles Borromeo showed us around at the Tata steel sport facilities. We were impressed by the Tata Soccer Academy, the Tata sports museum, the cricket pitch and the archery academy. We are looking forward to help improving hockey.
We off course triggered by the quote of the founder of the Tata Group, Jamsetij Tata, more than 1 century ago to `reserve large areas for football, hockey and parks´. We obvioisly fully agree. Sports and recreation bring good to people and communities. We hope we can bring more hockey in Jamshedpur and Jharkhand. We think that in the state many enthusiastic hockey legs are available.
