In today’s fast-paced and competitive business world, companies are constantly seeking innovative ways to boost employee morale, enhance team dynamics, and foster a vibrant company culture.
Amid this pursuit, a groundbreaking sports startup has emerged, reshaping the corporate landscape with its unique approach to promoting teamwork, fitness, and camaraderie within organizations.
Vizag Sports Club, the brainchild of Sandeep Varma Sagi, has quickly gained momentum as the go-to solution for corporates aiming to infuse the energy and passion of sports into their work environments.
People relocate from one place to another for a variety of reasons, including employment, education, and business. Finding a community that participates in one’s favourite sport is difficult. So, Vizag Sports Club gathers everyone, and all they have to do is come, play, and pay.
“Since my first job, I had not discovered any corporate sporting activities, particularly cricket, taking place in Vizag. The creation of the sports club was the result of my desire to host a cricket tournament that would bring together all the IT businesses,” said Sandeep adding that this initiative has helped in creating large sporting communities as well as helped people in networking.
The club had hosted the ITAAP Sports Fest which saw 25+IT Companies such as TekWissen, Inspiredge, WNS, Quant System, FluentGrid, Concentrix, HSBC, Conduent, IBM, etc participating in various sports like Cricket, Badminton, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Throwball, Tennikoit, Athletics, etc.
The startup as of now primarily relies on sponsorships and nominal entry fees from players for its revenues and claims to have benefitted more than 30 + companies and over 5000 + IT professionals.
Going forward Vizag sports club aims to leverage technology to its advantage and is also mulling to host exclusive events for women employees where they can also feel the thrill of premier leagues.
