Casual badminton can be played by anyone at any age. Young kids as young as 5 years old or elder people at the age of 60 can play badminton. ... In order to be able to undergo badminton training at the national level, you'll definitely need to start young because badminton players on average, retire at the age of 30.

Venkata Naga Rajesh’s Answer

Hello Spurthi,

Yes you can certainly pursue your career aspirations and be a champ of the game!!

Few points you need to consider before you take a decision:

  1. Evaluate real passion for the game in you, How long you been following the game ? How good you know the rules, facts and game already ? Who do you look upto as your inspiration and why ?
  2. What is your ultimate motivation for this decision ?

Turning from a casual to a professional game requires decent efforts and resources. Look for these options, plan and start. Beginning, believing and consistency are the important factors for success.

All the professional today you see are what they are today is purely based on the above points mentioned.

Good luck to you !!

Venkata Naga Rajesh recommends the following next steps:

Proper Coaching facility
Good sports equipment kit
Dedicate time for practice

Deena’s Answer

You can take up your career at any age that you please. You just have to have a night that you’ll probably be working at school as well as a job in order to support yourself. I recently was on an interview and I decided to be brave. The person who was interviewing me told me he had just started a new career five years ago when he turned 65. I asked him how he was able to do that? He answered life is all about reinventing yourself and embracing change and doing what
You love.

Nikhil’s Answer

If you have never ever played badminton before, then taking up a career in badminton now will likely not have a high probability of success. I am assuming that you are an intermediate to high skill level badminton player, and are interested in turning a hobby into a profession. If yes, then then you can absolutely do it! Where there is a will, there is a way!! My first suggestion will be to enroll in a local Badminton club and start practicing consistently. Also, it would be imperative for you to get a Coach - someone who can spot your strengths and weaknesses and develop a personalized plan to get you to the next level. Wish you best!

Stavan’s Answer

You can but you also need to make sure about you physical abilities and also your passion for sports. Playing sports is not only mental strength but you have to be intelligent enough to compete at international levels.

Stavan recommends the following next steps:

Explore about sports
check whether you have appropriate and quality coaching available.
Make sure you have sound understanding about that sport
you will have to speed up the process as you are already 19
live with the dream that you are going to be the best player and follow appropriate diet.

Rajelakshmi’s Answer

Hi Spurthi,

since you have asked this question, I am assuming you have interest in Badminton and are pretty decent at it.

Now to purse a career as a sportsman in India is a challenge however it's not impossible.

And from my personal experience though I am 10+yrs of your age, I am pursuing my career in weightlifting, so age is just an entry point after that its your caliber and your determination to excel at it.

My first and foremost advice to you is to hire a Coach (who knows his stuff very well) and has connections.

Be mindful and careful here as there are many wannabe coaches out there, who promise results but actually don't.

so look at the Coaches track record, his style of coaching and form in Badminton, also look how his previous students have progressed and excel.

Apart of this, I highly recommend you to start competing in Badminton competition across INDIA & ABROAD, I know it's a bit scary to read this and think about it.

But trust me, this will make you a great well rounded sportsman.


I want you to remember this quote, "You don't get what you want, you don't get what you need, you get what you deserve".

And the deserve part is when you obsess about it and work towards your goals day in day even if that means 15mins a day..


I wish you all the best, Take care!!

Gunjan’s Answer

19 is a good age to choose Badminton as a career if you have been playing already. If not, then you will need time to pick up the sport, start participating in championships and winning it. How quickly you do it, depends on your passion, dedication and coach.
