The National Sikh Games-2020 that is a modelled replica of Australian Sikh Games will be organised at various venues in New Delhi from January 9 to January 11.

Around 2,500 athletes from 10 states are expected to participate in over 16 sports disciplines, said Manjinder Singh Sirsa, president, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).

The event has been dedicated to the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak and has been organised by Delhi-based Jap Jaap Sewa Trust in partnership with the DSGMC and various sports and cultural associations. It aims at tapping the sporting talents of Sikh youths and tackling the problem of obesity through sports and physical activities.

Cultural events will include bhangra, gidda, singing, stand-up comedy and other activities in which both men and women can participate. Events will be conducted at four venues. This is second time that these games are being conducted.
