In India sports is yet to take center stage as a fruitful career option. Parents do not see sports as a potential career and students or professionals lack support and infrastructure on various fronts. However, these factors are not a hindrance for sports enthusiasts who find their way to sports grounds. They play, they excel and they win. To support the development of sports in India, BITS has come up with a non-profit festival SPREE. Are you ready to celebrate with BITS Spree 2016?
