My First Visit to Chhatrapati Sports City at Balewadi
Shri Shiv Chhatrapati Sports City at Balewadi where the Youth Commonwealth Games will be held, is under massive construction. Balewadi stadium is a very impressive complex for CYG Pune 2008 and is one of the finest facilities I have seen. Looking at the kind of work going on, CYG is doing its best to make the stadium better and it will be on time and ready for the people.
Entry to the stadium in restricted only to the authorized persons: Athletes, Staff, Volunteers, media and other games participants.
The plan to provide WiFi connectivity in CYG, was an innovative idea and challenging too. An added advantage for sports plus internet lovers.
The entire 9 sports venue has WIFI facility available.
In all the entire stadium has 9 sports venues:
8. Table Tennis
Among all the above venues I loved Badminton venue. It is so well facilitated that World Badminton Championships can also be carried out.
Each Venue in all has the following facilities:
> Broad casting live from Doordarshan: Cameras are all set by the media which will be covering all the actions live.
> Result printing room: From where the results will be calculated, displayed, announced and printed too.
The roads constructions and gardening are all in full swing. I also liked the idea of having a artificial lake set up.
Will be uploading the images soon॥
