As we know Sports Law in India is one of the very niche and developing phase as compared towards worldwide. We know that sports formed an important part of ancient India when the Kings and Queens played various sports as a means of fun as well as a mode of leisure for the population. Also sports were once a means of revenue for the players and did not flourish as a profession or an entertainment. You cannot believe that legislation governing these sports or federations has been established in support of athletes and their skills, but we do know that they have entered into contracts only to make money for themselves and amuse the Kings and their people. The star games were royal games and aristocracy, games like Chess, Archery, Hockey, Polo, and Wrestling. Any of them have been adopted as families' rituals. When people's values and thinking evolved, the view of sport often shifted and became an experience full of passion, encouragement and the urge to demonstrate before the rest of the country. Events all over the world began gradually in India, and the State provides support for the development of players' training centres. Even after this move, since government and citizens lacked inspiration and the lack of standardised regulations for sport, India was not able to represent its talents properly. Also in modern times, there is no significant legislation to govern the Sports Law in India, as a one proper national legislation. So this handbook will help us to understand what are place we are lacking and what are the challenges which can come to develop the Sports Law in India, as one book.
