When you enter through the gates of IMT, the first thing which comes into your field of view is a billboard which says, “Leaders are known to make history. Meanwhile our students are busy in deciding the future.” With a smile on your face and a feeling of pride in your heart you walk further down to explore the riches of this 33 year old monument. As soon as you cross the library, the lush green football field comes into the scene with the volleyball and throwball poles forming the horizon and blurred images of basketball court at some distance. At that moment you realize that there is another dimension to this intellectually acclaimed and scholarly distinguished b-school of IMT. And that is where we, the Sports Committee of IMT Ghaziabad come into the picture.
With warmness in our hearts and the “Jeena Yahan, Marna Yahan” philosophy in our minds, we love to work around the clock to serve the nationally renowned sporting talent of IMT. We take immense pleasure in fulfilling the sporting appetite and adrenaline deficit of IMTians. From Table Tennis to Basketball, from Volleyball to Badminton and from Cricket to Football, the “Sports Comm. Santa” encapsulates everything and much more in its gift bag.
