A total of 105 players from these organisations participated in the tournament with "true sportsmanship and spirit".

She also acknowledged the sponsors and presented them with a token of gratitude along with a snake plant, which was an initiative launched during the environment drive that started last month for which the Indian Cultural Centre recognised Tulukoota as the best among all the participating organisations.
