The Jaipur Pink Panthers is a Jaipur based kabaddi team competing in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL). Owned by actor Abhishek Bachchan, the team won the inaugural edition of PKL in 2014. Currently coached by Balwan Singh, the team considers the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur as their home venue. They are strong contenders to win the PKL in 2018.

PKL Trajectory

Jaipur Pink Panthers started their PKL journey by winning the first edition. They somehow lost track and ended up 5th in the PKL 2015. The tournament in January 2016 could not turn their fortunes as they sunk even below to the 6th place. They made a very good comeback in the June 2016 tournament and were the runners-up.

In 2017, the group stages were introduced and they could not go past them. The Panthers lost in the group stages.

Prominent Achievements

The title win in 2014 has to be their best achievement. The second place in June 2016 was more significant given that they were 5th and 6th in the previous two editions of the tournament.

Low Points

Speaking of low points for the Panthers, their exit in the group stages in 2017 was a big upset, given the quality of players they had in their roster.
