Our tagline describes us best. Sportzilla is a team of passionate sportsmen, sports managers, sports event organizers, sports technology specialists and sports trainers.

Sportzilla – a start-up based in Pune, was formerly known as Explore Adventures. Explore Adventures was formed in 2014 and was re-branded to Sportzilla in August 2017.

Our directors at Sportzilla, Sucheta Kadethankar, Nitin Joshi and Atul Godbole have been into endurance sports, mountaineering, marathons, cycling for the past 15 years. Having tasted the fruits of endurance athletic games, we thought of trying our hands on organizing unique, theme-based sports events, talks, seminars and workshops as well as providing these and lots more services to other sports events. We were born in December 2013 during one of our group long runs and since then we have been sincerely working in the field of sports events management.
