Value of Sports
The value of sports and games is today recognized by all educationists. Books develop our minds but games develop our bodies. Games, if properly played, not only make our bodies stout and muscular but also fill our bodies with strength and vigor. Games also provide freshness to our minds and imbibe in us many qualities. Games inculcate in us sportsman’s spirit, honesty, punctuality, regularity, team spirit, leadership, and obedience.
A true sportsman is never sorry and sad for his defeat. He plays games for the game’s sake and not for winning always. Each game is played under certain rules, to be obeyed by all the players. Above all, games teach us how to command and how obey.
