Bangalore, India (PressExposure) November 04, 2009 -- Indiakhelo.com, India's premier sporting site, announced Bengaluru's first ever Indian Regional League for Basketball and Volleyball for teams from schools, colleges and apartment complexes. Commonfloor.com, India's biggest online apartment community will be co-organising the tournament for apartment complexes. The tournament will host more than 150 teams across 35 colleges, 35 schools and 20 apartment complexes. Some of the apartments who have confirmed their participation are IDEB Springfields, Ferns Rainbow Drive, Sobha Jasmine, Purva Fountainsquare, Suncity Corporate Leisure, L&T Southcity Apartments, etc. The teams will play their matches on Dec 5th and Dec 12th at Jayanagar stadium to announce the final winners across various categories.
The Indian Regional League (IRL) aims to propagate Basketball and Volleyball and encourage players to scale new heights in sports. This event will help rank and rate players and give them a competitive perspective across the top players in Bengaluru. Each participant will also get a certificate of participation along with a post event sports analysis report. The plan is to replicate the IRL across over 20 cities in India and create a sports ranking system for serious school and college level players. Prashant Pitti, CEO and co-Founder, Indiakhelo.com said, "We want to give serious players a platform to take their sport to the next logical level by sharing our sporting knowledge and network and giving them access to our resources through the IRL event and make it a continuous process post the event through Indiakhelo.com"
While the tournament will be a very important addition to the school and college level sporting competitions, it will provide apartment level players a first ever chance to move ahead from local level matches and compete with the best players across the city. Sumit Jain, co-Founder, Commonfloor.com said, "Our association with the IRL is a win-win situation for apartment teams to move on from gully-sports and play in the highest competitive form and the most authentic professional setting. Moreover, it is yet another opportunity to reaffirm the community spirit that we stand for."

IndiaKhelo, a firm started by a group of IITians, was founded in 2008 with the aim to change the way India perceives sports. The founders believe that it's not that there is a lack of talent in our country when it comes to sport; it's just that talented people are not getting the necessary recognition and motivation. A large number of talented youngsters are being over looked because of the absence of a system to uncover talent. Organizing a structured & regular sports event to highlight talented players is foremost on the mind of organizers.
