About Saran Sports
Saran Sports was founded on August 19, 1996 by Sanjiv Saran Mehra a former investment banker with Lazard.
Saran was an active sportsman himself during his school and college days but once he started working with Lazard he had to give up his passion for sports due to tight work schedules. Like Saran, several other busy executives too were forced to give up participating in any kind of sporting activity. Saran realized this void and introduced the Saran Corporate Sports Series in 1997.
The primary object was to fulfill the aspirations of corporate executives (amateur players) wanting to play competitive sports on weekends, besides providing a stress free forum for relaxed interaction away from the pressures of workplace.
Since then Saran Sports has expanded rapidly and branched out into various Sports at different levels.
Pioneers in corporate sports in India, we were first to launch corporate sportswhen the First Corporate Event (Corporate Cricket 7s) was organized in 1997.
Listed in the Limca Book of Records as organizers of India’s biggest corporate sports series.
Over 700 Corporate Teams and nearly 17,000 executives have participated in our multiple corporate sports events since inception.
One of the major areas Saran Sports have been focusing on is Talent Hunts at the grassroots level, which also includes school contact programmes. Based on brand promotions and requirements the school contact programmes vary from programme to programme and are structured according to the requirements of our clients.
