KOCHI: The Regional Sports Centre’s coaching academies working out of the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Kadavanthra, which was closed a few months ago to be renovated to the standards of a National Games host venue, has been re-opened.

Almost 95 per cent of the modifications stipulated by the National Games secretariate has been completed, paving the way for the resumption of some of the sought-after coaching programmes, including badminton.

Badminton and a string of indoor disciplines were missing from the list of RSC’s summer coaching camp owing to the National Games work.

RSC honourary secretary SAS Navas said, “The rest of the work at the indoor stadium will not disturb the training programmes.”

The Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium will host table tennis and shuttle badminton for the National Games and went on to undergo a `8.5 cr  overhaul, complete with a fully-airconditioned indoor stadium.   The stadium has seen improvements in its acoustic insulation, decades-old electrical, lighting and firefighting facilities.
