The infrastructure has a new & gorgeous look now which has two wooden badminton courts and has provision for table tennis, carom, chess, etc. There is also provision for playing volley ball outside the stadium building. The renovated structure was inaugurated by Sri Lal Bihari Himirika, local MLA-cum-Chairman, District Planning Board where Sri Jagannath Saraka, MLA-Bissam Cuttack, Dr.Niranjan Buxipatro, Vice-Chairman, Rayagada Municipality, Sri Rahul P R, SP, Rayagada, Sri Madhusudan Mishra, PD-DRDA, Rayagada, Sri Muralidhar Swain, PA-ITDA, Sri Prabir Kumar Nayak, Sub-Collector, Rayagada, Sri basanta Kumar sahu, Sub-Collector, Gunupur, Sri Siba Gopal Rao, BDO(I/C), Rayagada, Sri Saroj Kumar Nayak, CDMO, Sri Gouranga Sahu, Executive Engineer, PWD, Rayagada, Sri Prasanna Kumar Acharya, Excise Superintendent, Rayagada were present.
