Sports Facilities in Rural areas

07 July 2014, 05:00
I watch the news almost everyday and I see different sports like Cricket, Rugby, Tennis, Golf etc. The only sports facility that is available in the rural areas is soccer open grounds with natural grass or just gravel.
Now there is the talk of quarters in the national teams. Would it not be wise to talk about development of sports facilities first and giving everybody a chance to play. Sport must not only be seen as a business where a few must make a profit. The nation needs sport to stay healthy and keep busy so that people can stay away from drugs and sex.

We have the Department of Sports and National Federations who are custodian of sports.  We have the municipalities. 
There is no single Cricket or Rugby nor Tennis facilities  in all the rural areas.
Whose responsibility it is to help out to develop sports facilities in the rural areas. Don't get me wrong. I am not talking about fancy stadiums. I am talking about a simple open field. 
The Schools in the whole of rural areas they don't have proper sports grounds. Club sport is not even possible because there is partnership between the schools and the community. The schools operate in isolation and play no meaning role in the development of the community. 
Would it not be good if we can get clarity on who is responsible for the development of sports facilities?
