OBA continued to support College Rugby and Basketball during Sept – Dec 2016

Among many games where boys of Zahira College are engaged, Rugby and Basketball teams are performing considerably and bringing glory to our Alma Matter after competing with leading colleges in the country. OBA continued to support the College Rugby and Basketball by sponsoring the Rugby and Basketball Coaches during the latter part of 2016 (September to December). Thus, it became possible to keep the players trained, in match fitness and readiness for matches.

This intervention paid rich dividends when the Under 16 Rugby Team emerged as the Runners Up (Plate) in the All Island Schools Tournament held in Koggala, Galle on February 05 after competing with many leading colleges. While we wish these boys all the success in the future endeavours, we are glad to inform that the OBA UAE Branch has agreed to sponsor the College Rugby for 2017. With the continuous support of UAE Branch, we are certain that the College Rugby will bring further glories.
