The Indoor stadium at Pakhowal Road and ultra-modern sports park in Sarabha village were inaugurated by the then Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal last year. 

 Badal, after inaugurating the indoor stadium, said: “I came to know about the project which was hanging fire and decided to take it upon a priority and we completed the project in 2.5 years,” he said. 

While inaugurating the ultra-modern sports park at Sarabha village and visiting another such park at Dhaipai village, which was developed at the initiative of Dakha MLA Manpreet Singh Ayali, the Deputy CM appreciated the efforts of Ayali for creating sports infrastructure including 70 sports parks and 16 basketball grounds in Dakha constituency. 

 Indoor Stadium

Here in the north where the weather is at extreme hot and cold, indoor stadiums and arenas are becoming a popular choice for sports programs. An indoor stadium not only offers an air-conditioned space for games and recreation, but can also serve as a great space for concerts, ceremonies (like graduations), and other events that require a great amount of space and seating. 

Ludhianvis are looking forward to much more interesting events in nearby future... Hoping this dome comes out to be fields of dreams!

 Crowning accomplishment for our Smart city-Ludhiana.
