The participants in these games will be the semi-finalist teams of the Inter-Collegiate tournaments 2019-20 from the affiliatedColleges and P.G Departments of the University of Jammu. The formal proceedings of the event were carried out by Dr. Komal Nagar, I/C Assistant Director, Sports and Physical Education.
