Chaos in sports lead to creating this website. An idea by the sportsmen themself.
In India Cricket is dominating all other sports and people don't give much importance to the players of other sports as much as they value and appreciate cricket players.
There are so many other sports and its respective players who bring laurels to the country are being ignored. At the same time, athletes with so much love towards the sport and who are great at the game lose interest towards the sport as they are not been given the right financial care, support, and appreciation hence they are underperforming, So, most of them let go of the sport and divert themselves to a different path.
Such situations occur to 99% of the sportsmen and to avoid such a situation and empower the athletes, Gamactics was co-founded by Shantala Bhat along with her husband Santhosh Patil and a Paralympian and Arjuna Awardee Sharath Gayakwad.

About Shantala Bhat
Shantala S Bhat was born and brought up in Siddapur, Karwar District in Karnataka.
She studied in a government school and was the only girl to opt to become an engineer in her entire batch of about 70 students. She didn't stop there, she joined IIM-B in the year 2011 to learn the business and put that amazing concoction of skills – engineering, business learning, and common sense to solve a problem. Shantala Bhat set up India’s first platform to fix learning and access to equipment in the Sports Industry.
Shantala worked in a corporate firm for 15-long- years between 1999 to 2015. She finally quit her career and gave into a love she fostered for long- entrepreneurship. The sports industry suffers from a lack of athlete information and their performance details, lack of financial support, lack of accessibility to world-class sports equipment, and opportunities and lacks infrastructure and accessibility. To fix this chaos she Co-founded Gamatics along with her Husband Santhosh Patil and Sharath Gayakwad.
Shantala's Force behind this Startup when asked "I always thought about my contribution towards society, while I was working a corporate job. Am I making someone richer or am I actually contributing to the growth of society? This question always lingered in my mind. You can donate money or take classes in the weekends but, that’s not something I really wanted to do all my life. Gamatics is a social enterprise and I really wanted to bring a change in the system and a corporate job wouldn’t have allowed me to do so''.
