Writer, director and producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary, founder of Swastik Productions has bought the Punjab Bulls team for the upcoming season of Tennis Premier League. The 2nd edition of Tennis Premier League is all set to start from December 12 to 15 in Mumbai.
At the auctions of Tennis Premier League held recently, Siddharth Kumar Tewary has bought the top player in the men’s list which includes names like Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan (ranked India’s number 4 in the men’s doubles) and Pranjala Yadlapalli (ranked India’s number 2 in the women’s singles). He was present at the auctions along with the mentor of his team, Ajay Lakhotia.
The first season, that saw around 132 players fight for the championship in various categories received an overwhelming response and tremendous support and encouragement from the entire sports as well as the entertainment fraternity. This season, the league has designed a unique format in which each team will compulsorily have a player on a wheelchair and 2 winners of the talent day in Delhi, that will be announced later. The league is established under the guidance of AITA and MSLTA.
Commenting on this association, Siddharth said, “I have been an ardent fan of tennis since I was a child. Having practised the sport myself, I understand the intensity and fitness it demands. I’m glad I have got the opportunity to own Punjab Bulls for the second season of the Tennis Premier League to be held in December. The league is a great opportunity for players from all over our country to showcase their passion for the sport and use this platform to hone their skills further and represent our country internationally. Also, I’d like to congratulate Kunal Thakkur and Mrunal Jain for this great initiative that will help our tennis enthusiasts further their growth.”
