Our Sports initiatives identify, nurture and support sports talents from all across the country.

We at Bharat Forge, believe sports activities not only help in developing self-confidence and strength in an individual but are also important in maintaining fitness and health. We are aware that not all sports persons in the country are privileged enough to pursue high level trainings or take advantage of specialised guidance to excel in their respective sports. Thus we took the initiative to promote talented sportspersons across the country, funding and mentoring them to help them make a mark in their field.

Bharat Forge supports the players of LAKSHYA - NGO and have been mentoring them to take part in sports within the country and overseas.

Lakshya
Lakshya – Is an initiative by Bharat Forge to assist sports persons in their training and development. Our sports initiative - Lakshya is all about identifying, encouraging and supporting promising sports talent from across the country.

Encouraging rural sports talents

Helping them to rise and shine

Under our sports initiatives, we at Bharat Forge identify and nurture budding talent in the villages across different sports. We provide financial and training support to our players, and have been actively supporting many players in sports like tennis, chess, boxing, car racing and badminton.
