Gym at indoor stadium opens for public in Madikeri

 State-of-the-art stadiums and facilities are essential for the sports personnel to hone their skills. To support the sports talent in the district, the department of youth services and sports had constructed an indoor stadium at General Thimmaiah Stadium in Madikeri.

Youth have been showing interest in shuttle badminton and body building in the recent years. Keeping this in mind, the authorities had developed shuttle badminton court and a gym. The gym will be open for not only the sports personnel but also for the public and students. The decision was taken by the District Stadium Development Committee.

The indoor stadium which was developed using lakh of rupees was not utilised by many. Hence, the Committee had decided to allow the public to use it.

Those who would like to gain admission to the gym can collect application forms from the department of youth services and sports in General Thimmaiah Stadium on September 16.

The registration fee for shuttle badminton is Rs 500 for students, Rs 1000 for public and the monthly fee will be Rs 200.  The fee for using the gym is Rs 400 for students, Rs 750 for public and the monthly fee is Rs 300, said department assistant director Jayalakshmi Bai.
