“We want the sport to grow. We are planning to have TPL (Targetball Premier League ) soon.I see a huge potential for this sport here and with the support of the government we will be able to make it a huge success.Within a short span ,it’s grown from season to season and has manifested itself in terms of more people playing with deeper engagement each season, so it certainly stands out as a successful sport with most of the neighboring countries playing Targetball now. The game was recognised by School Games Federation of India (SGFI) ” said Sonu Sharma, the Secretary-General of Bhartiya Targetball and Founder & President, Int Targetball Fed.The Federation is trying to create the ecosystem to encourage Targetball talent in the country.

It will create an option for Indian kids to explore their talent in this new form of sport.”
