Humans have had a passion for sports since time immemorial! Sort of a cliché quote but yes, we do 😊. It’s been a great way to communicate, make friends, and make bonds!

Probably hunting could be considered the earliest form of sport, sometimes done individually and most of the time in groups. 

Although we have refined versions of sports nowadays the core value or the instinct remains the same.

Sports serve society by providing vivid examples of excellence!

George F. Will

We have so many studies proving the psychological benefits of sports on humans however do you know that sports can be used as an effective measure to reduce the societal gap?

Sports can be very beneficial for society, people love entertainment, they love to compete, and they love to enjoy each other’s company.

So here are reasons how sports can build better societies.

Communication

  • It is the key in every relationship but when you play a sport and even if the language is foreign, you start talking non-verbally. And that forms an instant bond with the teammates!

Team spirit

  • Sports can give a boost to team spirit, you make a connection that is beyond any caste, color, or faith.

Egalitarian world

  • I hate to break it to you but subconsciously we are all somewhat biased, and secretly we all judge! So, when you see people coming from a different background on the same platform, you play, you communicate, then you realize that we are all the same!

Adaptability

  • People tend to become more adaptable when they play across various regions and cultures.
  • They learn to respect others because we know that communication be it verbal or non-verbal is the key to an egalitarian society. And sports provide an excellent opportunity to engage in dialogue.

Build friendship

  • Sports can help in building friendships and lifelong bonds. Along with being a way to channelize energy it provides an excellent opportunity where people can learn and engage and ultimately develop empathy towards each other.
