Welcome to Carrom Canada, the online home for carrom lovers all across Canada. The origins of this indoor sport can be traced to the Indian subcontinent where it is a hot favourite, especially during the rainy season. Over the decades, millions of enthusiasts have been drawn to this game for its convenience, affordability and the sheer joy of taking aim and winning. We welcome you into this ever growing family and encourage you to share the fun with your friends, colleagues and relatives. We are always looking for new ways to take our beloved sport to the next level.
LET’S GET SERIOUS ABOUT FUN. Carrom can be played purely for entertainment as well as for competition. Both forms reward you with an immense sense of accomplishment. Anyone can play. Individually, or with a partner. You don’t need a college degree, but the ability to laugh and listen to phony boasts certainly helps. As the sign on a Bass Pro store says –“Fishermen, Hunters and other Liars are welcome”. We’d like to add Carrom Players to that statement and we’re sure our fellow carrom players will agree. Playing carom brings out the child in you and stress simply vanishes away.
EXPANDING THE CIRCLE OF JOY. At present, there are two kinds of groups. On one hand we have carrom players who meet up regularly to play. On the other hand, there are players who love the game but cannot find a group to join. Our mission is to bridge this gap and include more and more players in our circle.
THE GAME PLAN.
1. We will keep you informed. Carrom has become very aggressive internationally. Through onsite videos, we will continuously update you with the latest rules and regulations. [Go to archives] 2. We have introduced our members to an international playing audience with trips to USA, the Carrom World Cup in Sri Lanka and visits by USA players to Canada. [Go to archives] 3. We have imported 24 tournament-standard boards to promote this game. Such non profit ventures are essential because although there is a lot of interest, without proper equipment the result would be poor. [Go to archives]
TOGETHER WE WIN. We are looking for volunteers and venues where small sessions can be held. We need information/photographs on any carrom events held or to be held for uploading. With your help we will make this site a “CARROM HUB” not only for Canada but around the world. Do let us know how we can improve. We believe any idea that leads to success is worth trying.
