Values Of Games And Sports

This is an article depicting the importance of sports and games in a students life.


There is a great importance of games and sports in life. It is right said," All work, no play makes Jack a dull boy." The neglect of health results in sickness which badly effects both mind and soul. Those who take part in games not only have a healthy and robust body but also possess a sound mind. Their outlook of life is generally broad and optimistic. Games teach sportsmanship which includes qualities like team-spirit, discipline, co-operation, fair play and taking victories and defeats in the right spirit. So games are of great value in the process of education. Books and contacts with the outside world do teach aspects. A player learns it in a practical manner on the playground.

Games and sports provide an outlet for physical and mental development. They keep us fresh and smart as well as they enable us to regain our lost energy. We breathe pure and fresh air in the open playgrounds. Hardwork, physical exercise and fresh air make the players strong and energetic. They teach us value of discipline, co-operation and dignity of manual labour in life. They teach players to be tolerant and create among them the feelings of unity and equality. The spirit of team-work and co-operation generate in them a feeling of community life.

Games and sports help us in character building. We are able to make the best use of our leisure. Instead of wasting our energy on undesirable and unpleasant activities, we can better utilize our energy and time by devoting ourselves to games and sports. Games and sports serve us a good and healthy pastime. Games and sports also win fame to players in addition to money and respect. Considering the great importance of games in private and public life, our government is laying stress on their need.

Well according to me , although several measures are being taken to remedy the insufficient attention yet it will take a long time before we can compete with other countries. It is our sacred duty to popularise games and sports which have an individual, social, national and international importance.
