The Asian Games 2023 will be held at Hangzhou, People's Republic of China, from September 23 to October 8, 2023. The 15-day-long continental showpiece, shifted from 2022 to 2023 due to COVID-19, will feature 40 sports this year, with Asia’s best competing for top honours.

India have had a storied history at the quadrennial event and the past couple of decades have seen Indian participation at the Asian Games rise considerably. At the last edition, Jakarta 2018, India sent a contingent of 570 to compete in 36 different sports.
