At Welham, sport aims at physical fitness, emotional well-being and spiritual development. The objective is to help students develop respect, discipline, leadership qualities and team spirit. It is through rigorous practice that students hone their skill and develop an undying passion for sports.
Students of all ages get numerous chances to showcase their talent at various events and tournaments organized by the School. Besides the permanent physical education teachers and coaches we also have individual game coaches who enrich the department with their sporting acumen.
The dedication of the coaches coupled with the students’ desire to give their best, has resulted in many major achievements that includes winning the under 17 Football and Basketball IPSC, playing the prestigious Subroto International Football Tournament, and lifting the Winner’s trophy at all the major basketball tournaments for the past 6 years.
The advancement in the sporting infrastructure is ceaseless. The resurfaced Activity Center basketball courts were only the beginning of many expansions to follow. We now have two synthetic tennis courts, a 25 meter swimming pool and three cricket pitches. This has led to Welham winning many more laurels.
The two existing squash courts are being renovated and a new one is being added which will make a total of 3 glass courts.
In addition to the 2 indoor existing badminton courts, 2 outdoor courts are nearing completion.
The sports offered at Welham include cricket, hockey, basketball, soccer, volleyball, squash, tennis, table tennis, badminton, rifle shooting and skating. Students are encouraged to also take up Athletics, Gymnastics and Yoga.
