The Haryana government will be establishing four sports injury rehabilitation centres in the state, the first to be opened in Panchkula at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Sector 3.
Confirming the development, Haryana Sports Minister Sandeep Singh said the centre would be ready before next year's Khelo India games that are to be held in Haryana, The Indian Express reported.
For the same, he had held a meeting with the delegation of the Gujarat Sports Department at the Complex on Saturday, September 11.
The minister said the players who are injured have to visit other countries for their treatment. But with the establishment of these centres, players will be able to recover under expert supervision in the state itself.
Singh said the sports department would recruit 200 new coaches and set up over 1,000 sports nurseries in several disciplines to encourage youth to participate and imbibe sports in their lives. Haryana has sports complexes in Gurgaon, Sonepat, Panchkula, among other cities.
"The department is also giving high-level training to the state players to encourage them to excel in competitions and bring laurels to the state", Singh added.
The state government will hold a ceremony on September 19 in Gurgaon to honour the medallists and participants of the Tokyo Paralympics.
