Swami Vivekananda was once quoted saying- “It’s better to play football, than reading Gita”.


GCELT is one such institute which if not practices, but firmly stands by this particular saying of Swami Ji. In GCELT we firmly believe, sports and recreations is as important as studying itself in the course of making a good engineer and thus a good citizen and human being.

GCELT provides infrastructure for both outdoor and indoor games. It has got its very own playing field (cricket/football), badminton court, volleyball court and basketball court in the college campus, along with adequate light arrangement for playing even when the sun goes down. Students play in this ground on a regular basis and also sports tournament are held annually.

The sports tournament includes cricket, football and badminton tournament where along with the students, faculty and non-teaching employees of the college also participates, and thus also acts as a platform for all to interact outside the classrooms. Besides this inter-college tournaments are also organized in the college ground and team from GCELT also takes part in other colleges’ sports on a regular basis.

The indoor games available in GCELT include carom, chess, cards and other games. All this are placed in the student’s common room along with a computer for pc games.

The college authority and Students’ Welfare Association provides all kits and infrastructures required for different sports and whole heartedly encourages every single student to participate in this different games/sports.


Sports and games are very essential aspects of character building, and a college being a character building institute never neglects or discourages sports and games.
