Vinay was an average middle schooler who loved to play badminton. He started when he was around 12 years old. His inspiration was from his first coach which is his dad. As he grew up, he played for the University of Banglore. Vinay competed in many tournaments which encompasses, singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. When he was about 23, his first exposure to badminton as a coach began in Bangalore,India for a group of kids who wanted to play this sport. His further studies/job brought him to the US, but as always, wanted to play badminton and started coaching in Phoenixville, PA and pretty soon started to coach in Smashville, Pottstown PA. Currently he actively coaches kids/adults of all ages with individual sessions and in a group setup when needed.
Smashville has played a very important role in keeping him fit.
