AgilizTech stirs a ‘racquet’ with the Passion League App

Techies by weekdays and racqueteers by weekends, that’s the Agilians for you! With our innate zeal for sports and passion for technology, we decided to combine the two and develop the best-ever app for sports management, Passion League. The journey flagged off last month and on Sunday, 18 Dec, we were able to put our web app to a pilot test, at the Bangalore Racqueteers tournament. The event was hosted by CoachDirect at Gopalan Sports Centre, Bangalore.

We decided that this was a prime opportunity to test our app in the real world, capture real-time data and get solid feedback from the tournament participants. And so, on Sunday, the AgilizTech team visited the arena armed with racquets, determination and, of course, the Passion League App.

Coach Direct had provided us with player information and seeding details previously, so we were set up pretty well to watch the action and quickly feed in the wins and losses. With our web app, the players could see the scores and the opponents’ details, right on their mobile screens.

Also, we gathered copious feedback.

While the participants were thrilled with our app, they suggested quite a few enhancements. We took extensive notes and will be working on them to improve our app, thus helping sportspersons manage their activities better with the PassionLeague app.

Our team had a great time at the court too. Agilians participated in large numbers at the Table Tennis and Badminton events. We made it to Round 2, but unfortunately couldn’t progress further. Nevertheless, what mattered is that we participated, learnt and had a whale of a time!

The A Team!

The A Team!

And you know what? We would love to meet you at the court. Game for a challenging duel of table tennis or badminton? Meet the Agilians in the next tournament then! You can find the details of all the upcoming tournaments here – http://passionleague.in/

The Stepout2Play Hackathon 2016 Team

Over a two-day time-frame, our team of programmers, consisting of Shyam, Kishor, Agilan, Meghana, Smita, Guddu, Niraj and Gowtham, collaborated to re-visualize and rebuild the website. The event was conceptualized and presided by the MD & CEO, Ganesh Babu.

The Hackathon was immensely fruitful, as the team effectively strategized and achieved major milestones in development. Also, as the event stimulated the creative-thinking abilities of the team and enabled AgilizTech to actively pursue its innovation-based agenda, the Hackathon was an all-round success.

Stepout2Play: Asli Panga starts tomorrow!

Sports fever has gripped the country once again, and this time for a reason other than cricket. While we ‘bleed blue’ for cricket, it is apparent that other sports are fast gaining attention among Indians. The tremendous success of the Pro Kabaddi League stands testimony to this fact.

Now onto its fourth season, the league has captured the imagination of millions of spectators. Such is the reach, that this season will see 24 international players from 12 countries of the likes of South Korea, United Kingdom, Sri Lanka, Japan and more.

With the Pro Kabaddi League promos hitting TV screens, fans are geared for exciting showdowns in the much-awaited Season 4. Expectations are running high, courtesy the nail-biting moments and action-packed performances delivered in the previous seasons. The question on everybody’s mind is who will clinch the title this time? The champions, Patna Pirates, or the defending champions U Mumba? Or, is this the season of the underdog, Puneri Paltan?

Well, during Season 3, AgilizTech’s in-house oracle, Guddu, decided to stop wondering and start predicting! Guddu devised an analytical model that can foretell a match’s outcome solely on the basis of the teams’ past performances. Last season, 55% of the predictions came true! Now, Guddu is back with a new, improvised model to tell you who will most likely be this season’s superstars, for every match, every day!

Guddu’s predictions are available on our website http://sportsnews.stepout2play.com. Watch this space for Pro Kabaddi Season 4 daily match updates, season summary and more.
