Having been competitive sports persons themselves, the founders and mentors of CSE are well-placed to understand the huge impact that the right infrastructure, coaching, equipment and exposure can have on the performance of an athlete on the global stage. CSE was set up with this vision of providing facilities to promote excellence in sport, and we pride ourselves on the quality of infrastructure we provide across all our sports venues.

Champions don’t wait for things to happen; champions find their own ways to win, fair and square. They don’t wait for success to come to them; they go after success. That’s the hallmark of a champion.

-Prakash Padukone

When you play for the love of the game, you play with respect and humility. You play for the team and for everyone who has made it possible for you to step out on the field. That’s what sport is about and that’s what makes you a true sportsperson.

-Rahul Dravid

Infrastructure is the backbone for development in any field. The Padukone – Dravid Centre for Sports Excellence was built to provide Indian sport with the world class infrastructure it needs to produce sportsperson of the highest caliber. Playing sport is also the foundation on which we can promote a fit, balanced lifestyle for all, ensuring we become a healthier nation.
