President’s Message                     

Indeed it was a great honour to me to be the President of Pune District Zonal Sports Committee under the Board of Sports, University of Pune. I am very much thankful for this honour. The importance of the sports has been rightly stated by Aimee Mullians in the words "The power of the human will to compete and the drive to excel beyond the body's normal capabilities is most beautifully demonstrated in the arena of sport." .

Undoubtedly my sincere thanks are also due to all the members of affiliated colleges of the Pune District Sports Zone. I am thankful to Dr. W. N. Gade (Vice Chancellor, University of Pune), Dr. Deepak Mane Director of Sports, University of Pune, Dr. Datta Mahadam, All the Principals.
