Sports activities are an essential part of the college life. However,
it is more important at the university level as young and energetic people enjoy sports as it relieves them from stressful academic routine. It is an established fact that sporting activities entail a range of benefits for the campus life in the form of character building, social interactions, team work to achieve common objectives and power of decision making in critical situations.
Namal College has established a number of sport facilities at the campus as well as at student hostels. Despite the limitations of space on Campus, there is a gym, a badminton court and a table tennis court; all for the use of the students. The hostel residential area at Chakda is furnished with a large grassy ground used for both cricket and football. A new jogging track and an indoor badminton and table tennis court are under consideration to be built this year. If built, this would help foster a healthy culture of competitiveness at all levels of student activities. The vision 2020 of establishing Namal Knowledge City includes the erection of a state of the art sports complex that would provide a full range of sporting facilities to the students and to the entire Namal community.
A healthy body bears an active and strong mind. Namal College arranges an annual Sports Gala for the students. This provides them a chance to keep fit and take their minds off their hectic academic schedule. Girls and boys actively participate in this event, which includes games like cricket, football, badminton, table tennis and kayaking. A special prize distribution ceremony is held at the end and the chief guest gives away prizes and trophies to the players and winning teams.
