About The Team

Bengaluru’s newest professional sports franchise is called the ‘Bangalore Raptors’. It is the first time a professional sports league team has globally crowd-sourced their name, from online and offline platforms. ‘Bangalore Raptors’ unanimously emerged as the winning name! The Chandilyas liked the concept of being fierce, quick and smart. Inspired by one of the world’s most famous dinosaurs, the name defines the essence and DNA of the team. With smart picks from the player draft, ‘Bangalore Raptors’ is a great combination of international experience and Indian talent – Venus Williams, Feliciano Lopez, Thomas Enqvist and Ramkumar Ramanathan, as part of the team.

Sharing his plans for Bangalore Raptors, Mittu Chandilya, said, “This is the first sports venture that my wife Inga and I are getting together as co-owners, the team is like our fourth child. We have put in a lot of thought in choosing the team colours, designing the logo and jersey. Blood Red and Midnight Black, signify the ferocity of the Velociraptors, our team and the vibrant nature of the game. The three claw scratches in the logo symbolize our three sons, who are growing up to love the game of tennis.”

A former tennis player himself, Mittu trained under the legendary Ramesh Krishnan. “It is a proud moment to gift the vibrant city of Bangalore its own Tennis League team. Our fellow Bangaloreans can expect fireworks, entertainment, fun and all-round energy from the Bangalore Raptors”, he added.

Speaking on behalf of Champions Tennis League, Vijay Amritraj said, “We at CTL are delighted to welcome Mittu & Inga Chandilya’sBangalore Raptors. Bangalore has a rich history of tennis, and the Raptors with their strong team will give the city’s fans a lot to cheer about.”
