“By making users aware of nearby players and activities, participation in sports/fitness activities will get easier,” says Nayan Karnavat. Also, the app gives information about coaches and clubs.

Stating that Bengaluru is known for tens of sports/fitness related activities that happen on a daily basis, Nayan says: “This App allows listing and updating of activities like marathons, tournaments, workshops, et al. All the information can be shared with the participants seamlessly. Users can create their own activities and invite others. Participation in activities will be easier as booking will be made possible through spyn.”
Four-time national squash champion Mekhala Subedar said in a statement that the app is “fantastic.” “… It’s very easy to use, broadens the knowledge regarding coaches, players and location of squash courts in the city. Can surely recommend,” Mekhala added.
A badminton coach from Whitefield, identified as Gautham says: “The app is built with a lot of purpose. I can bond with sports buddies nearby, plus I can create tournaments and get an audience very easily.”

Nayan argues that an increase in activity will boost the sports and fitness eco-system in the country that will benefit the players, coaches, venue owners belonging to this industry. “While we are looking at sports and fitness in Bengaluru for now, we will expand,” he says.
