Our Objective

Our objective is three-fold:

To build sports ecosystems from the ground up. We look to build a wide base of recreational players, from which the best are chosen to play competitive sport.

To introduce the best international practices to our training sessions across India. This is achieved by employing international coaches to work with our team of coaches and develop them to execute international quality of coaching.

To build a community of basketball players who have easy and regular access to high-quality coaching, leagues, camps and tournaments. Pitch opens doors to children who have the desire and ability to pursue their basketball dream and compete at the highest levels.
