Players Coaching

While PPBA was established in 1994 as an excellence academy and works on an invitation only basis, PSM was created to cater to all and stands true to that till today. To be able to make badminton accessible for all, we deal with badminton players at all levels- beginners, intermediate, advanced, as well as adults.

With the growth of the sport across the country, there has been a rise in the number of badminton academies available for everyone. The uniqueness that PSM brings to the world of coaching comes from the standardization of the curriculum. A well-thought and planned out curriculum allows for guaranteed results, making our coaching programs special.

Yes, there is. You can sign up for our residential training program that is conducted at the Padukone-Dravid Centre for Sports Excellence in Bangalore.

As a player enters our system, they grow from beginner to intermediate, till they reach the advanced level. Really good players from there on may go on to be selected for the prestigious Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy. There are no limits to the level a player can reach under our systemic training methodology, it all depends on your hard work!

We are always expanding, so someday we may have a centre open up in the city you reside in- but until then please check out our Online Programs to be able to benefit from the PSM model of coaching.

'Become a Coach' Program

The in-person edition of this program is currently held at the Padukone-Dravid Centre for Excellence in Bangalore, but we also offer this program online, which makes it accessible across the world. You can register for the upcoming edition by registering here.

Our course draws from the Shuttle Time Modules and Badminton World Federation Level 1 Course. Add that to our decades of experience, we have built a program that provides the best. Each coach will get a Certification of Completion after the program.

The program is priced in a way that the investment could be recovered by a coach in less than a month. After our program, the coach can start taking full-time or part-time sessions for players and earn way more than the investment itself.

Online Coaching

When the initial curriculum was made, it was designed to make use of the court in an optimal manner. As the organization grew, and we introduced our online programs, they were made in a way to make use of people’s personal spaces in an optimal manner. Whether a participant is taking the course from their bedroom, a public park, or their rooftop- the online program was created by keeping this is mind- making a supremely high-quality online program.

As one might think, our online programs are not direct copies of our on-court programs. As they are specially curated to be highly effective keeping in mind the method of teaching, our programs are structured in a way that the basic technicalities of the sport are imparted even via video conferences and tutorials.

While there are multiple badminton tutorial videos available online, what we offer is a standardized proprietary model of coaching that is executed by highly trained coaches. In an extremely technical sport like badminton, just slight improvements in the basics could have huge impacts on the game. Being able to learn the methodology created by Indian badminton legend Prakash Padukone is something that is only available at PSM!
