Founded by Supriya Mamgain and Varoon Kapoor, Play Your Sport is a sports technology venture that helps coaches, trainers, sports and fitness enthusiasts, from young sports enthusiasts to working professionals who miss playing sports, to rediscover their joy of playing. Currently, Play Your Sport is being used by more than 1000 sports facilities across sports such as cricket, football, swimming, badminton and basketball to run acquistion/ retention campaigns, manage memebership and stream-line opearations.
According to the founders, the sports person in you never dies no matter at which stage of life you are at, but people stop playing because of the lack of convenient options. There is enough good sports infrastructure and talent in the country that goes unused and unrecognized because of the un-organized nature of the business. With the growing sports culture in the country along with the influx of sport leagues the company believes to bring the athlete in you close to your chosen sports.
‘Found this team, Supriya and Varoon very diligent and capable entrepreneurs who are committed to their purpose of redefining the sports culture in India,’ said Ashish Gupta.
