MMC-Mayor Cup

Delhi clinched the MMC-Mayor trophy by defeating the ISC of Malegaon 2-1 (11-15, 15-08, 15-08). Adding glory to the spectacular victory in the final match, ace shooter and Delhi captain Arun Kumar also won 'Hero of the Tournament' award for his brilliant performance in the two-day national competition.

Ajmal Sports Club and Malegaon Municipal Corporation (MMC) – both from Malegaon, won the 3rd and 4th prize respectively. Ajmal Sports Club was also lucky to win the 'Best Lifter' award for its captain Mubashir Mansoor.

The national direct shooting volleyball tourney, which was inaugurated in the afternoon on Saturday, was jointly organised by the Malegaon Municipal Corporation (MMC) and MASKR – Mushtaq-Ayyub-Sajid-Khurshid-Raju, a group of senior shooting volleyball players of Malegaon.

The final match of the tournament started in the highly charged atmosphere on Sunday at 11:30 in the night between Delhi and ISC Malegaon. Even as the match was covered live through a giant LED screen and the organisers had made all the necessary arrangements for smooth running, the 2,500 capacity ATT High School ground looked miserably small to accommodate the huge crowd that gathered to watch the final match despite chilling cold.

The crowd went berserk as the local team ISC beat Delhi in the first set 15-11. Delhi however recovered from the loss and set the ball rolling in its favour with captain of the team Arun Kumar leading from the front. It won the second set and finally the decider to clinch the trophy.

A total of 36 teams from different states of the country participated in the tournament. Besides the states Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana which sent one team each, a total of 16 teams from different districts of Maharashtra and 14 teams from Malegaon took part in the competition.
