Abstract: The Department of Physical Education (DPE), University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka provides a wide range of Sports and Recreation programmes for the benefit of students. 15 games for girls and another 20 games for boys are organized annually. The best performed players are awarded the “University Sport Colours” at the end of the academic year. According to the players’ attendance for practices and other events, and their performance in matches, they earn points. On the basis of the points that the players earned, “University Sport Colours” was awarded to them. Winners of the colours award were selected through a system based on Microsoft Excel. There were many loop points in this system.
