Tadpoles - Discover, promote and support sports stars


An innovative initiative, Tadpoles.in, which is first of its kind was launched on the 1st of December 2013 in Delhi. Tadpoles gives a fresh outlook to the sports journalism industry.


Everybody wants to know more about a successful person. But, people don't become successful overnight. Who encourages them during their days of hard work and preparation? Who has faith in them when they are unsung heroes?


Tadpoles.in - the world’s youngest online sports magazine is here to track, discover and encourage the sports stars who have the potential to create history.

Get inspired by their tales of struggle, passion and triumph.


Tadpoles.in is not just another sports website, but a platform for young and talented sportsperson  It brings to the fore the vast amount of sporting talent that lies hidden in the depths of this nation.

Like any initiative this can only become a reality when all of us plunge in together and change the face of sports in our nation, make India not just a cricketing nation but a sporting nation. For together we believe that nothing is impossible.

There will soon be a day when newspapers and news agencies will not just talk about the MS Dhoni and Cristiano Ronaldo, but talk about the stars of the future; the champions in the making.


With just 4 months since its inception, Tadpoles.in has come across numerous talented young individuals, be it cricketers, swimmers, shuttlers, etc.

Each one of these kids is a tadpole and there lay numerous others hidden amidst the chaos all around us. Every youngster in the world of sports is a tadpole today, and a champion tomorrow.
