The OBA fosters camaraderie and promotes a healthy lifestyle among Josephites. The OBA conducted the inaugural Century OBA Tri-Series Tournament on Sat-Sun, June 23-24, 2018 at the Catholic Club in Bangalore. Josephites competed to win individual prizes in Badminton, Snooker and Squash. Fr Hedwig DaCosta inaugurated the tournament with a prayer.
Sixty-four Old Boys participated in the three sports. They were divided into 4 teams: Chat’s Favourites, Shikari’s Athletes, Ranga’s Boys, and UK’s Pets.
After the weekend of closely contested games and good cheer, Ranga’s Boys emerged winners with 19 points. Shikari’s Athletes and UK’s Pets were tied at 16 points. A frame of snooker was played as the decider, which Shikari’s Athletes won to secure second place. Chat’s Favourites finished with 15 points.
Prizes were awarded to teams and individuals by George Ollapally, Mr UK and Mr Shivaprakash. The OBA thanks the Century Group for sponsoring the inaugural edition, Old Boys for their enthusiastic participation over two days and the organizing committee for meticulous planning and execution.
