To those who refer to Coorg as ‘60-40’ (the district’s dimension in miles), the expression ‘Still hope Ammathi’ might also ring a bell. The small village has been immortalised as the beacon of hope for the hopeless, a symbol of optimism in the face of sure defeat.

It is said that many moons ago, when the Ammathi team was being horribly mauled in a hockey match, a frail feminine voice of a die-hard supporter cried out ‘Still hope Ammathi’, thus giving birth to a legendary catchphrase, and a joke that can’t be shrugged off. However, in 2002, Ammathi got its own back. For the first time in the seven year- old history of the annual Family Hockey Festival held every April-May, corporate sponsorships catapulted it into a big league sport. The tournament was also intended to integrate far-flung Kodava families. The plan worked, a fading sport regained the spotlight and relatives living abroad made it a point to visit Coorg during the month-long fest that has become the Woodstock of Sports. It only lends further credence to the Kodava saying that a Coorgi is born with a gun in one hand and a hockey stick in the other.
