Leaving behind comfortable routines and friends and family, many new arrivals become overwhelmed by the sudden change in their social lives. This ‘social shock’
is exactly what prompted Ravi Bhusari and Derv Rao, to create Duplays, a networking portal that allows active like-minded residents to participate in sport.
We set out to bring strangers together through the spirit of competition, organizing sports leagues and teams for a myriad of recreational activities aiming to increase public health and shatter segregation through sport. Our goal was to make communities healthier, more social and more connected through sport.
In what has grown into a 120k+ members strong portal, Duplays has organized hundreds of recreational sports leagues which has encouraged the young professional population to engage in a more healthy and active lifestyle. Besides this, we also serve as a portal to facilitate bookings of sports venues across the UAE. In addition to this organizing corporate sports events like employee engagement, employee wellness and CSR programs has become a major part of our business and we are currently expanding to provide training and lessons in a variety of sports for students and the greater Dubai community.
