This year has been a very difficult year for all of us, and I’d like to start by offering my deepest condolences to all our members who have lost loved ones to COVID-19.
The human spirit is unconquerable as we come together to face the challenges that will be presented in 2021.
Having spoken to so many of my fellow kabaddi supporters I know that we stand as one. My faith and respect for you is all to evident.
We as an organisation are driven by our unity in promoting the sport of Kabaddi to the world. During 2020 we have managed to create a pathway for our members to have international recognition and have introduced the sport to new communities globally.
2019 Successes to be celebrated.

Planning for the World Cup in Scotland
Planning for the European Championships in Cyprus
Planning for the African Kabaddi Championships in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Appointment of new commissions by World Kabaddi
Multiple events planned by our members across the World
Our organisation has been in full planning mode during 2020 and we will be hosting all the above events, competitions and initiatives in 2021, god willing.
It is also vital for me to thank our committee members who have stayed committed and united in service of our members and our organisations philosophy.
To those that are working independently I welcome them to join us and work together to promote the sport of kabaddi.
World Kabaddi is on a journey that will bring people and communities together to play the game and build lasting relationships and positive partnerships for the common good.
I pledge to work even harder to ensure the success of our organisation and I ask the same of every office holder, official, sponsor, player, and supporter to make the same pledge.
When it comes to the development of Kabaddi on a global stage, we are the change we the future.
I wish success and happiness to you all and a prosperous 2021.
ONE VISION! ONE SPIRIT! ONE KABADDI!
