UTV Indiagames launches Cyber Open for tennis gaming fans

MUMBAI: UTV Indiagames, in association with Parle G, is conducting Cyber Open tournament around tennis.

This first of its kind tournament is organising online as well as offline events in search of players who excel in gaming.
Targeting the age group from 9- 14 years, the Parle G Cyber Open tournament is aiming to capture the pulse of the young gaming community both at the online and on-ground level through tennis.

To play the game online, the users can log on to the website – and register to play a specially conceptualised 2-D game of tennis. Clocking around 2, 20,000 paqe visits, the website is already becoming popular among the gamers.

At the ground level, Cyber Open will be travelling across six cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai in search of gamers, to play a game of tennis on the Wii console.

The finalists for both the PC and Wii will then compete at the grand finale to be held in Mumbai on 5 December. The winners of the wii game will win a trip to Hong Kong’s Disneyland and online winners can win themselves a brand new Wii Console. 
UTV Indiagames founder and CEO Vishal Gondal said, “Kids have a tremendous inclination towards gaming and more often or not, they have the ability to beat the best of adult gamers. Having said that, there are very few tournaments in the country today that address this talent and hence UTV Indiagames, in association with Parle G, decided to organize Cyber Open so kids can display their potential in gaming”.
Parle Products GM marketing Pravin Kulkarnii said, “Today’s kid is an all-rounder who is good at multitasking. He is genius at what ever he does. He is the Parle G, G mane genius Kid. We are very thrilled to associate with Indiagames on this property as its fits in our brand objective. Cyber open goes beyond high-end visuals and makes game play real by facilitating physical involvement in a game. Initial response is very encouraging and we will always look forward for similar association in future.”
