TAFISA’s commitment to the promotion of Traditional Sports and Gems (TSG) is visible through several programs TAFISA led or is involved in, such as Recall or the TAFISA World Sport for All Games happening every 4 years. In order to further promote and help reintroduce TSG, TAFISA in partnership with local universities opened Regional Traditional Sports and Games Centres.

The TAFISA Regional Traditional Sports and Games Centres of H.V.P. Mandal, Amravati, India and Gerlev Sports Academy, Denmark are quite active and doing well, almost 2 years after their launch in September 2014.

H.V.P. Mandal, Amravati, India

Developed in order to safeguard and reintroduce TSG, showing their importance both for the culture they represent and the innovative way in which they can help make the world more active, the centres provide academic courses on TSG, seminars, training camps and have various activities throughout the year. They also serve as research centres for TSG.

Gerlev hosted a course on the subject: “Recall: Games of the past – Sports for Today – How to play it…?” on March 14-18 2016. The Amravati centre also offers 4-week Summer courses in specific disciplines such as yoga or some TSG (Malkhamb- Pole and Rope, Kabaddi and Kho-kho).

Following the success of the first TSG centres, TAFISA wishes to continue their development. Any organization interested in opening such centres is welcomed to contact TAFISA at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
