Wooden floorings & other world-class amenities
According to reports, four badminton courts and six table tennis centres in the stadium will not only get wooden floorings but also get additional facilities as well. Once completed, these centres will have a seating capacity to accommodate around 100 people. Apart from this, the badminton court and TT centres will also be equipped with basic amenities like lockers and separate dressing rooms for men and women, four entry and exit points.
A boon for budding athletes of Kanpur & nearby areas
With a total budget of ₹4 crores, the civil work in this project is likely to cost around ₹2.5 crores whereas the rest is set aside for equipment and finishing.
