Raising a Champion- Juniors Badminton Coaching

The best badminton training program for lifetime success

badminton for kids


Introducing your child to sports at an early age has several benefits. At Padukone sports management, we train kids as young as 6 years of age to pick up a racquet and start playing with the proper technique. Besides giving them a chance to play professionally in the future, early badminton training helps children develop a keen love for sports that will always keep them healthy and fit.

It’s also known that children who play badminton develop better balance and coordination, and fine motor skills while practicing the harmonious interactions between their limbs to play the game well. It also teaches children to be focused, as they must remain alert throughout the game.

Padukone sports management focuses on technique and instills sportsmanship qualities in your child, like patience, perseverance, teamwork, and camaraderie that will help them succeed in life, both as a sportsperson and an individual.

Importance of Sports at an Early Age

A message from the legendary badminton player Prakash Padukone to parents:

Psm Founder Prakash Padukone

“Most parents tend to wonder about the right age for a child to start playing a sport. While there are no hard and fast rules to this, creating early is always advisable. In fact, I would go to the extent of suggesting that a child can accompany a parent playing a sport right from the age of 3 or 4.

The child need not start playing a sport at that age, but the idea is to get them interested in sports. Then, depending on the sport, they can ideally start playing from age 6 or 7.

It’s also best for a child to be exposed to 2-3 different sports just to feel that particular sport. Then, depending on the ability and interest of the child, one can start specializing in a specific sport from age 9 or 10. It is said that the ideal way to initiate a child into sports is to start with three essential sports – Athletics, Gymnastics, and Swimming. We call them the mother of all sports.

There are two significant advantages in this:

1. You can be involved in these three sports from a very young age
2. It lays a solid physical foundation for the child to take up any other sport of their choice as they grow a little older.”

Unfortunately, in India, not many parents are aware of this and often push their children into playing a sport that parents enjoy. This should be avoided to the extent possible. Instead, let the child explore their skills and interests to pick a sport that genuinely interests them.
