Sports have played a key role inthe history of Sikh religion. 6th Guru Hargobind Sahib ji organized wrestling competitions and introduced martial arts to the sikh community. Guru Gobind Singh took this concept further after the creation of the Khalsa in 1699. He started Hola Mahallah celebrations in Anandpur Sahib, where Sikhs could demonstrate their martial skills in simulated battles. Their military techniques, swordsmanship and fighting capabilities were strengthened. There were many other sports practiced like horse riding, running, and wrestling. During Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s kingdom, festivals lasting ten days were held every year. In those festivals, competitions in martial arts, horse riding, spear throwing, archery, and sword fighting were held

WA Sikhs have been actively participating in all sport activities. PCSC- Punjabi Cultural and Sports Club, was formed in June 2002. This club organizes sports and cultural events for the Punjabi community in Western Australia. Refer to the following link for further information about this club.
