Dear Friends of Kabaddi

We celebrated the first ever Kabaddi League Championship in all the three disciplines in Siddharthanagar Lumbini, Nepal from 11th – 14th September 2009 with slogan ” Play Kabaddi for Peace and Harmony” The IKL Championship aimed to offer good opportunity to all the Kabaddi clubs, Associations and Federations to represent from their respective countries to participate and demonstrate their skills in all the three disciplines. We are happy to record that 269 players and officials from 20 teams availed the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and exchanged friendship and brotherhood by participating the championship.
