Sridhar Reddy

Anirudh started his journey with Star Badminton Academy in the summer camp of 2017, when he was 7 years old. he later continued his training at another academy for a year. But we were unhappy with his progress there, and returned to Star Badminton in mid 2018. After that, within 4-5 months his progress was remarkable. Based on his coaches’ recommendation, we enrolled him in the Mini Pro batch, and later in the Pro batch which includes private classes. He is now a part of the Project 10 and has been doing great so far.

We have been associated with Star Badminton Academy (SBA) for over a year and a half, and our son Mukul is enrolled in the advanced batch. The coaches at SBA are professional and focused towards improving the fitness and skill level of the kids. During COVID lockdown, the coaches conducted online classes to ensure that the kids continued their training. Thanks to SBA for inspiring Mukul and bringing a high level of dedication in him towards learning Badminton.


Arushi started training at the academy in 2018, as a complete beginner in Badminton. Since then, I have seen significant improvement in her skill and confidence. The experienced coaches understand the mindset of kids. Outside the court, coaches have conducted fitness sessions at a nearby lake pathway, and also innovative online sessions during COVID 19 lockdown. My daughter has immensely benefitted from the ‘Project10’ program. Overall I am highly satisfied with the Star Badminton Academy and recommend the same


Wanted to share that my daughter Sudha (Name Changed) has been attending the pro coaching with Dhruv, Chethan and Guru. They have been very committed and taking a lot of interest in training her. They are very accommodating and train her at the time she asks for. There has been a lot of good improvement in her game and confidence levels. I am very appreciative of the level of commitment and interest shown by Dhruv and team!! Hoping the team will help Sudha reach higher level of the game


My son Shaurya has been  training with star academy since 2 years. I have really seen how the training has made him a much more confident person. His concentration, determination has improved tremendously.  He is becoming a very disciplined boy as a whole. From fitness perspective, he  exercises rigorously and passionate to keep a tab on his fitness using fitbit. Whether he becomes a baddy player or not, I am sure this training will help him become a  successful  individual
