Trying to integrate fun into our  increasingly fast-paced, stressful lives that are filled with responsibilities can be a daunting task to many . But every once in a while we need to use our  reserves of energy for something more fun. Therefore, the Youth Wing of the Goan Community of Oman (GCO), organized the “FUN SPORTS 2014” on Friday 17th October 2014, in  Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Ruwi at the Basketball Court.
 ​
The focus of the event was pure entertainment, opportunity for enjoyment and socialization between all communities of our parish..

As the teams registered themselves, participants were given badges matching their team names. We had 5 mixed age group teams, comprising of 20 mem bers each, which were inspired by names of saints like St. Francis Xavier, Don Bosco, St. Peter, St. Paul and St. Anthony.

To mark the beginning of the event we had a march past by all the participating teams, led by their chosen team captains holding team name plaque cards.  It was a delightful and disciplined spectacle as discipline is also the spirit of sports. Father Wilson Rumao, assistant parish priest, led us with an opening prayer and declared the Fun Sports open.
 
The highlights of the sports were the four games that suited all the age groups, teens, youth and adults who participated with great enthusiasm and energy. Our in-house DJ kept the crowd in a merry mood with great music during the games and teams were awarded points at the end of each game which led to their grand total.
 
St. Francis Xavier emerged winners of the event, the second place was bagged by St. Peter and the third place by St. Anthony.
 
All teams were treated to snacks and soft drinks courtesy GCO. At the end, the event was a success with wonderful sporting spirits and funniest moments captured; a great way to relieve stress. Everyone went away smiling having had an enjoyable evening
