Physical Education


       Holy Cross College proves its credit in the academic and athletic spheres from the day of its inception to this date. Started with the dictum that “A sound body harbors a sound mind” Holy Cross College from the day of its inception developed physical education as a part of the curricular activities. Since 1936 physical education has found a sound place and made fast development in the college in various fields.

In 1950 high level sports and games were adapted in the college and in 1951 Holy Cross College began to participate in inter- collegiate tournaments. Madras university tournaments and sports have been held in our College quite often since 1960. In 1978-79 the playground at Holy Cross College were re-laid and well set having been devasted by the floods of November 1977.

In 1979-80, class-wise and inter- departmental tournament and sports were introduced on a regular annual feature instead of inter- house basis. The Holy Cross sports club was started in June 1980 and the club won many laurels and awards. The basketball court in our college premises was constructed in the year 1979-80.

In the year 1981-82 our college had the unique opportunity of hosting the Madras University Inter – Division basketball tournaments and Thanjavur division Inter – Collegiate tournaments and sports. The year 1982-83 witnesses the starting of Bharathidasan university sports and tournaments.

To commemorate 75 years of service in the course of education, a newly measured basketball court, the first of its kind in Tamil Nadu was constructed in our college campus. Our college has was the team championship many times in the district level and inter - collegiate competitions by maximum participation. Many of our students have represented district, division, university, Tamil Nadu and India for various games and sports.
