BackFour was created by four friends whose passion for sports was channeled into creating an online discovery and booking platform conceptualized with the aim of solving a common problem – finding a well-documented and available sports facility in your locality. From there the idea spread to providing not only grounds to play on, but programmes, teams and adventure activities that you, at home or while travelling to a new city could participate in.
The aim was to help sports enthusiasts connect with fitness programmes, (including gyms, yoga, zumba, marathons, personal trainers and cross fit training), coaching academies, sports clubs, sports grounds, self- defense classes, as well as adventure sports.
We as a relatively young founding team are working towards connecting the youth back to what we loved to do the most, connecting us back to sports.
MEET THE TEAM
Backfour is a relatively young, close knit team, with new ideas that explore ways to reach out to people and engage an entire city with sports and adventure
Before getting completely immersed in Backfour, Bharat was a civil engineer by profession. He passionately believes in a healthy lifestyle, be it eating good, working out good or being at peace mentally. He loves having a set of great friends, long drives and the spirit of adventure especially when both are mixed together. Oh and when he is not working you would probably find him rooting for Chelsea FC !!
Sports has always been a part of Teja from the earliest memory that he can recollect. He claims that the only time his brain acts as functioning alarm is when an early game of football is to be played. While moving from one city to another for work Teja often found it hard to find the place or the time to play. He realized that every city had a lot to offer but not many people were aware of it, which is why he became a part of Backfour to create awareness about sports and make it accessible to all.
From working in the art sector as a curator & art acquirer to now furthering a self-built and growing name in the education sector, Madhul Singh has donned many creative caps. Her ardour for Horse Riding, Tennis and swimming through the years though have been unwavering. The lack of easy access to these hobbies, even in big cities is what led her to join hands with the other co-founders and start Backfour.
Zain is a person who likes how simple ideas have the potential to create memorable experiences. He has previously worked in the finance sector and is now currently working on enabling these experiences through Backfour. A huge Leo messi fan he likes to sleep and daydream in his free time. Reading & playing Football are though something he’s most passionate about.
Backfour is extremely convenient to use. I love the fact that I don’t need to pay the entire amount in one shot.
Booking late night football games have never been easier. Haven’t had to sit out on a Friday night because of no bookings since the app launched.
My first time surfing was booked through Backfour and what an experience it was.
