The Annual Sports festival of BITS Pilani Hyderabad Campus, ARENA’14 , took place this year in the last week of January. 120 teams from different parts of the country participated in competitions held in the 200 acre sprawling campus of BITS Hyderabad located near Shamirpet. This was just the second edition of ARENA but it has already come a long way from its initiation last year. This sports extravaganza had an impressive crowd of more than 5000 students from all over India. Coca Cola was the title sponsor for ARENA’14.
ARENA is a classic example of planned, organized and effective team work entirely by around 220 students of BITS Hyderabad. This year our campus did us proud by bagging gold in both cricket and hockey. The basketball team of Hyderabad, both girls and boys also stood first. The boys’ lawn tennis team bagged gold while the girls’ team came second. The volleyball girls’ team and the boys football team were runner’s up.
After four days of great matches and a performance by DJ Sharon Amir who has also performed at the champion’s league it concluded on the 2nd of February.
