The camp resumed on August 17 but only basketball women’s team are carrying on their camp there

Accommodation problem during the preparation camp before any mega multi-sports events like the Asian Games and South Asian Games is nothing new. 

The issue hit a new low after kabaddi, kho kho and tennis women’s teams decided not to continue their camp at Sultana Kamal Women’s Sports Complex in Dhaka.

After 10 athletes from kabaddi, kho kho and basketball disciplines suffered dengue fever at the same arena, the Bangladesh Olympic Association had to close the SA Games camp at Sultana Kamal Women’s Sports Complex before the Eid-ul-Adha vacation. 

The camp resumed on August 17 but only basketball women’s team are carrying on their camp there.

Kabaddi women’s team will shift their accommodation venue to the old building of National Sports Council today, while kho kho women’s side already resumed their training camp at Physical Education College Sunday, informed the member secretary of SA Games training committee AK Sarkar to Dhaka Tribune. 

Out of six female tennis players, three moved to BKSP in Savar while the remaining three continued their training staying at home.

“We don’t have sufficient venues for training and adequate spaces to provide suitable accommodation to the players after training. We currently have 668 athletes and 115 officials from 23 disciplines in the camp but most of the disciplines are facing some accommodation issue mainly due to financial limitation,” said Sarkar.

Sarkar also informed that they have instructed the respective federations to cut short their participation list in the camp by September 15, ahead of the sub-continent’s biggest sports extravaganza, the SA Games, slated for December 1-10 in Nepal.
