The Gymkhana Ground looks much better now. And, I assure you all that it will look even better in the days to come,” insisted the top SAT Official Dinakar Babu.Telangana Hockey Secretary N. Mukesh and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics goalkeeper Edwards Alloysius look on, as the top official of Sports Authority of Telangana A. Dinakar Babu wields the hockey stick at Gymkhana Ground in Hyderabad.– PHOTO: V.V. SUBRAHMANYAM they could not be faulted if they hoped for the ground to be in much better shape in the days to come. The Begumpet Police Stadium with astro-turf is confined to history as the police have taken complete charge of the venue. For the record, SAI Hostel is now located at Gachibowli Stadium where two astro-turf grounds are available. It will be great if hockey comes back to this venue with a bang. For this is where we learned the nuances of the sport from coaches like late Abharanam sir and Doraiswamy sir,” reminds Alloysius. The few times the SAT top officials summoned the engineering head to give the estimates in this regard, it remained only on paper! And the scarcity of maintenance staff at the sprawling Gymkhana which also caters to football, basketball, handball, tennis and cricket (only nets) is a hurdle in focusing more on the hockey venue alone
