The longest history which we have in sports are in Athletics and Cricket. We have more than 100 years of history in  cricket and  have been able to play our 100th Annual Cricket Encounter Vs. Kingswood College in the year 2007 in a grand scale.

At the beginning we used the Bogambara and Police grounds for our sports activities and after purchasing the Lake View Estate our students use the college grounds for all sports activities. Today our students are able to have all their sports activities in our own grounds which has been renovated up to the standards of an International Level Cricket Ground with Turf Wickets, by the Dharmaraja College Old Boys Union with the Lake View Development Project.
