Helping them chase a dream

Power Play

For many who had not even held a racket in their life, it was day to remember.

“Badminton is an expensive sport and not everyone gets an opportunity to get trained here. The initiation by the organisation was excellent and hopefully if possible I would like to continue doing such programmes on a regular basis,” said Prakash. Having started at an early age himself, Prakash said that he has many fond memories of the sport. “At the age of seven, it was my dad who introduced me to the game. I still remember there was this one very expensive racket of his which I was not allowed to touch but everytime my father went to work I would take the racket and play with it. One day, by mistake, I broke the racket and I remember getting a good firing for it,” he recollected.

After watching the children play for a while, he noticed that many of the kids had great potential for the game. “It’s really nice that in just a couple of hours many children have picked up the sport so quickly,” said Prakash, as he went and joined the children to play the game.
