Anjana Sirikumara present AL student at St Josephs College Nugegoda has become the Charter President of the Sri Lanka Tetherball Association. Mr. Sirikumara said that he was extremely thankful to be associated with this athletic game, that is introduced for the first time in Sri Lanka.

Tetherball is a North American game for two opposing players. The equipment consists of a stationary metal pole, from which is hung a volleyball from a rope or tether. The two players stand on opposite sides of the pole. Each player tries to hit the ball one way; one clockwise, and one counterclockwise. The game ends when one player manages to wind the ball all the way around the pole so that it is stopped by the rope. It must not bounce.

The board of directors of the Sri Lanka Tetherball association are the following:

Charter President – Anjana Sirikumara
Executive President – Dhinoda Hansina Perera
Secretary – Yashodha Dilesh
Deputy Secretary – Tharushan Aloka
Coordinator – Ishan Sirikumara

Tetherball was introduced to Sri Lanka for the first time by Anjana Sirikumara’s grand uncle on 16th April 2015.

The association is planning a social media campaign to promote the game in Sri Lanka.
