AMID low gathering, five kabaddi matches were held in the sports park at Sarabha village, the ancestral village of Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha. This year, the state government went for rural stadiums to attract the masses and to make kabaddi more popular as a rural sport. Despite the effort, the gathering was bare minimum similar to what was witnessed in Gurdaspur Friday.

Dr BR Ambedkar 6th World Cup Kabaddi 2016 began on November 3. The tournament has 11 men and 8 women teams from various countries participating in it. However, the enthusiasm was lacking unlike previous tournaments and easy victories by the men and women teams indicated that there was not much competition from the opposition.
