NUMS believes that mental and physical fitness is important for the productivity and motivation of employees. To encourage the employees for participating in healthy activities, the first ever NUMS employee’s ‘One Day Cricket Tournament’ was organized by the Event Management Directorate at the Army Cricket Ground, Rawalpindi on 16th of March, 2019 in which both male and female employees participated.
The participating employees were divided into eight teams, each team consisting of 11 players. The tournament kicked off with the match between Admin Directorate and Examination Directorate. The Vice Chancellor NUMS Lt. Gen. Muhammad Imran Majeed HI(M) also visited the venue to encourage the employees and highly appreciated the enthusiasm and females’ participation in the tournament.
The Grand Finale was played between the teams of Examination Directorate and NDSBS (NUMS Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences). It was a nerve-racking match and finally the Examination Directorate team triumphed at the first NUMS Employees Cricket Tournament.
The Guest of Honor, Pro-VC NUMS Maj. Gen (Retd.) Muhammad Aslam HI(M) distributed the trophies amongst the winners and runner-ups. The winning trophy was received by the Captain of winning team, Controller of Examinations, Brig (Retd.) Saifulllah Butt among cheers and roars from the crowd.
