Harbhajan Singh who inaugurated the product was quite excited to be associated with a sports dedicated start-up, focused at promoting a culture of sports and fitness. ?While I was growing up I had immense love just not for cricket but every kind of sport, however, we have persistently witnessed a lack of access to sports ground and other facilities. An online solution to this problem was unimaginable till now.? commented Harbhajan.

He also spoke about the relevance of the product in metro cities where people especially the youth do not seem to find the time, space or like-minded communities to actively pursue sports and fitness activities. The start-up has associated with multiple sports academies in Delhi-NCR and just started operations in Bangalore. As per our internal sources, they have plans to expand operations across 6 cities in India and globally by March 2016.
