In HAKQ we were not going to let the young and talented Kokani’s be left behind. It was also a way of binding this young talent through a group. The thought of setting up this committee was brought into existence.

Under the guidance, consultancy and dynamic leadership of Mr. M.I. Farid, the Sports committee has flourished many folds. In October 2009, last year, we successfully held the First Kokan Cricket Tournament at the Ideal Indian School Floodlight ground.  Four teams were formed namely Raigad Warriors sponsored by Gulf Lights, Ratnagiri Alphonsos sponsored by Hannan Cricket Club, Kokan Challenger sponsored by Emad Electricals & Sindhudurg Royals sponsored by SAL Contracting & Trading who participated on a league basis; with the top two teams playing the finals.

Mr. M. I. Farid, conducted the proceedings.  Guest of Honour for the finals was Mr. Raghib Qureshi, Second Secretary of the Indian Embassy along with Mr. Hasan Chougule.  The event generated a lot of interest, managed to raise much needed funds and was a grand success.

The committee has many other plans to offer. It is looking into further possibilities of encouraging the youth and the old alike to participate and keep fit.

The committee comprises of the following members: –
