BENGALURU RAPTORS

TEAM BIO

Owner: Slash21 Sports Management Pvt. Ltd.

Venue: Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, Bengaluru

The Reigning champions, Bengaluru Raptors is the Premier Badminton League franchise that represents Bengaluru. Amongst the six founding members of PBL, the franchise is owned by Matrix Badminton Teamworks Pvt. Ltd. Due to multiple owners in the past, the team has changed names thrice – Banga Beats, Bengaluru Topguns and Bengaluru Blasters. Although they won’t be able to host a tournament due to unavailability of stadium, Bengaluru would hope the likes of World No.2 Tai Tzu Ying and local favourite Sai Praneeth help them retaining the title.
