Footie First - Varun Kumar

Varun Kumar – Head, Sports Development

Varun traded in his running shoes for football studs at an early age and went on to lead his school team as a centre forward. After dabbling in various sports, he finally chose to pursue his lifelong fascination with tennis and rapidly smashed his way up to the national circuit. His incisive understanding of the sporting world helped him secure a win at the inaugural edition of the Khelo India Youth Games 2018, held in New Delhi. A true admirer of wide, open spaces, he has committed himself to the revival of outdoor games and recreation, and to ensuring that every child enjoys the opportunity to play their heart out.
