Aaryan is an undergraduate student at NYU Abu Dhabi, majoring in Physics. He has always had an undying passion for sports (see the shirt) and a keen interest in ALL sports, some quite obscure. Through this blog, he hopes to share some of what he has learned in the time he has spent watching, playing, and researching sports. 

The blog is named as it is because it focuses more on sports that are uncommon and obscure in India, or 'niche' sports. It is also a place where information about sports (less known sports) can be found. Hence the name The Sports Niche. It also has a 'nic(h)e' ring to it. The site will feature articles about some of the sports that do not receive enough publicity or coverage, as well as some sporting analysis and opinions.

This action-packed July, the site will focus on content from The World Games, Athletics World Championships, and Commonwealth Games. This will include explanations of the upcoming events, what makes them worthwhile to watch, and an overview of some athletes to look out for. The aim is to allow even newcomers to these sports to understand what happens on screen during the events they watch. The hope is to aid & enrich the viewing of these wonderful sports, whose beauty is often underestimated.
