mamatha poojary is on born 1986 in karkalla . she is an Indian professional international kabaddi player. She is the presently captain of the Indian women’s Kabaddi team. The journey of mamatha is started from village in Karnataka to glamour of the Women’s Kabaddi Challenge. very good story needs an interesting beginning. This was Mamatha Poojary’s: “When I was in school, I used to play lots of sports—kho-kho, volleyball, athletics. I started playing kabaddi in class XII. They were making a college team and were a player short, so I was called in. No one was ready to play kabaddi, because they did not want to wear shorts. It is a small village; people didn’t approve of it. The coach told me to just stand on the court because they needed seven players. He knew I was interested in sports. I was tall, had speed, athleticism, and used to get points regularly. I was really good at it.”The girl from the small village of Hermunde in Karnataka’s Udupi district turned out to be so good that by 2006, three years into her tryst with the game, she represented India. In 2010, she took part in the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China, and in 2012, she captained the national kabaddi team. n 2006, however, the entire village went to the bus stop to receive Poojary—that was when she returned from Sri Lanka after representing India at the South Asian Games. “They were proud of me,” she recalls. “After that they were the ones who used to encourage me and tell my parents that they should let me play.” n 2006, however, the entire village went to the bus stop to receive Poojary—that was when she returned from Sri Lanka after representing India at the South Asian Games. “They were proud of me,” she recalls. “After that they were the ones who used to encourage me and tell my parents that they should let me play.” “After working hard for 10-12 years, reaching this stage feels like a sense of achievement; all those years of hard work are finally paying off,” she said. “The girls are so confident, we just wanted an opportunity, and today we got that. For 2 minutes, we were thinking that we have to perform in front of so many cameras .The court may have been bigger, brighter and louder than Poojary was used to. But it was still the space where she has written and rewritten her story.
