The first experience of Ascension was record-setting in terms of size, hospitality, the amount of sponsors involved and the quality of volunteers. Obviously they surpassed all that this year. I have never seen a tournament of this scale in India or elsewhere. The teams and the motions were remarkable. I am already awaiting the next Ascension.”
