This game “the greatest game of all” not only inspires and motivates the players but the audience watching it. From the moment it starts the rapid heartbeats of the players and the crowd align till the end of the game to bring forth victory.
Hockey, the revolutionary puck game spreads its wings this year in the 12th Sri Lankan University Games (SLUG) from 12th to 14th August in the grounds of university of Peradeniya. Our talented players from University of Sri Jayewardenepura are all geared up to bring fame to their Alma-mater.
The USJP male and the female hockey teams will be led by the talented captains S.S Sampath and D.G.D.H.I. Jayaratne respectively. Our teams have shed their sweat throughout their journey and with solid training they have made it to the top among university teams. Once a person takes a hockey stick to their hands they will never put it down without a passion for this sport and as for the players of J’pura, passion has always been the driving force of their victories.
It is time to cheer all our hockey heroes as they set off to the hill country hoping to gain victory for our university!
