Suraj Bikkannavar, Founder at Sol Sports

Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Suraj Bikkannavar: I was a former National player and had to stop because of an injury, so started coaching just for fun and realized that am good at it. I did my ITF coaching certification and topped it. So I got confidence to start Sol Sports Academies.

Great Companies: What are the various Services provided by Sol Sports

Suraj Bikkannavar: We provide tennis and fitness solutions.

Great Companies: What makes Sol Sports different from hundreds of other Tennis Academies?

Suraj Bikkannavar:

We have international standard structured tennis program for every age group, and we have separate specialized fitness program.

Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?

Suraj Bikkannavar: India has a lot of potential to make it big in tennis but majority of the kids don't have a good diet routine. So that's a major challenge to convince parents. Also most give preference to academics over sports, so there is still no belief system which has developed that we can make it big in sports too.

Great Companies: How do you plan to grow in the future? What does 5 years down the line look like for Sol Sports?

Suraj Bikkannavar: We have already been producing results in National level. We are hopeful that in couple of years we will have students performing in International level.

Great Companies: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?

Suraj Bikkannavar: Knowledge, Hard work and Passion are the three things which are very important to start out anything and find success.
