The Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) won the 66th National Senior Hockey Championship at the Ayub Hockey Stadium in Rawalpindi by defeating National Bank of Pakistan (NBP).

The game remained deadlocked at 1-1 till the full-time whistle. WAPDA emerged victorious after the final was decided on penalty shootout.

President of the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) Brigadier (retd) Khalid Sajjad Khokhar hailed the players for their riveting performance. He also shared his insights to improve the national sport.

Olympians Kaleemullah and Manzoor Junior asked the hockey federation to play their role in facilitating the players by organising more of these tournaments.

"There are talented players across the country but who is willing to accept the responsibility of supporting them?" asked Kaleemullah.

"We have a pool of up to 350 players which includes junior and senior players. If you can't improve the monetary position of the players then at least facilitate them by conducting similar events," Manzoor Junior said. 

The winning team and players were awarded prizes for their performances in the tournament.
