The 11th edition of the Ritinjali Second Chance Golf Tournament presented by Hughes was played at the prestigious Delhi Golf Club on Friday, 7 October 2016. The idea of the Second Chance Golf tournament originated from our Second Chance School in Mahipalpur, Delhi where we attempt to educate urban, deprived young adults who unfortunately had to end an educational chapter in their lives.

The event saw an overwhelming response with 67 golfers, who teed off on a bright and clear morning. The event was inaugurated by H.E. Maj. Gen. Vetsop Namgyel, Maj. Gen. KMS Shergill and Mr. Pranav Roach. 17 of the 18 holes consisted of activities which made for an interesting round for the golfers. Organised by Digraj Golf, the tournament upped the ante for the participants this year with skill prizes and new innovations such as the 3 Clubs Hole and the Good Fortune Hole.

This year, we also displayed products created by the women in Nathupur as part of our Income Generation Programme. Our Second Chance boys took charge of the display table, where they interacted with visitors who showed interest in donating to Ritinjali through purchasing these handcrafted products.

The Second Chance Golf Tournament is a huge fundraising event each year, which uses the medium of golf to raise awareness and funds for the programmes at Ritinjali. The tournament brought diverse people together for a great day of sporting for a good cause.
