“Sports teaches us discipline, the ability to get up after losses and inspires us to be a team and this is very important for success in academics and sports.” – P. Gopichand 

Why The Sports School is primed to be a top badminton academy

High performance badminton training is an art form and to achieve success, an individual requires a state-of-art academy with top mentorship and professional guidance. The Sports School successfully hosted an interactive session with Pullela Gopichand, who is also the chief mentor for Badminton programs in association with Badminton Gurukul at the school. The crowd was vibrant at the auditorium and the young athletes erupted in celebration as P. Gopichand’s team walked into the room. 

The co-founder of Badminton Gurukul academy and maker of former national India No.1 in badminton, was treated to a unique event where the parents of the young students and the student athletes themselves took turns having their doubts and queries cleared about better career pathways in sports. The opportunity to meet inspiring figures such as the Vice President of BAI (Badminton association of India) and the motivation that comes along with being guided personally by personalities with global knowledge on specific sports and related pathways to succeed makes Sports school one of the best badminton coaching centers in Bangalore, India
