Think your child has the potential to become the next Badminton Champion? Here's an opportunity for them to train at the Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy.

IDBI Federal Life Insurance Quest for Excellence and Pullela Gopichand Academy have joined hands to launch a new initiative with a view to promote badminton among budding players in India. The initiative, called 'YoungChamps', will help young talent up to and under age of 10 years to showcase their badminton skills via a 2-minute video.

The winners of the contest will get to train at the Pullela Gopichand Academy in Hyderabad after going through a selection process.

Parents can submit their kids' entries by visiting between 24th January and 7th February. The applicant must share a two-minute video shot in daylight with adequate clarity. The entry is free and will be accepted for a period of 2 weeks, followed by a 4-6 week-long selection process.

The winners will be selected by Gopichand himself and later will be announced via 'Quest For Excellence' Facebook and Twitter page.

Pullela Gopichand, chief National coach for the Indian Badminton team and Programme head of 'Quest For Excellence', said, "India's youth has great potential in terms of sporting activities. With #YoungChamps campaign we hope to bring to the fore this hidden talent and prepare them for big leagues where they can represent India globally. I request parents to come forward and upload their kids' videos and give them a chance to showcase their badminton talent."

All the Best!
