Netplay Sports has opened its fifth Gamepoint Center in Uppal. The Hyderabad-based company is operating a chain of world-class sport centers called Gamepoint in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam.
Netplay Sports was started by Siddharth and Aditya Reddy, with first integrated gaming centre being opened in Hitec City in 2017. The gaming centre was started with an aim to offer sporting enthusiasts easy and hassle-free access to any kind of sports.
In the last two years, Netplay Sports has introduced four Gamepoint centres in Hyderabad and one in Visakhapatnam.
Besides Uppal and Hitec City, the centres are available in Madhapur and in a school in Hayathnagar wherein members can use the services post-school hours.
Aditya Reddy, Co-Founder of Netplay Sports, said, “Apart from watching sports, people in Hyderabadis are keen to actually play sports in order to keep themselves fit and healthy. However, the resources available two years ago were not easy and accessible to individuals. That is when me and brother decided to set up an international standard gaming centre which is technologically-enabled. Thus, users can just book their slots through our app and come and play as per their convenience.”
