Parents, coaches responsible for age fraud: Jwala Gutta

PUNE: Trust Jwala Gutta To be honest.

And when it comes to something as serious as the age change, the former World Championship medalist is as direct as possible.

Jwala, who was in the city as the main guest in the mini badminton ranking of the Pune District met in BadmintoNair in Kharadi, said parents and coaches need to take the blame for creating the age-fraud practice. BadmintoNair is an academy started by former India player Dhanya Nair .

I don't think children know that their age is changing. They do not know how it is done. It is the parents who do it. It is the coaches who do it. The children do not, he said. said.

There is always the temptation to reach the top using shortcuts, however, parents do not realize that they are giving incorrect examples for their children. They must make their children morally and ethically strong so they can see themselves in the mirror. And don't feel ashamed. The shortcuts take you nowhere. It is all facade. Coaches must take action if they find players who avoid their age. My trainer SM Arif Mr. used to make sure to take action against fraud, said Jwala, 36.

Jwala, who has played a decisive role in winning many medals at high-value events, has also talked about the rights of doubles players. However, she says she is sad because the road she had carved is now left abandoned.

During my game days, I used to fight for the rights of doubles players. Today I pity the doubles players because they are happy with what they have. They do not want to fight for their rights.

He added that India's doubles performance at the international event is proof that no one cares about doubles badminton.

Other than Satwiksairaj Rankireddy & Chirag Shetty , no Indian couple seeks to secure a position in Tokyo. And Jwala is not surprised.

"Why do we have by-chance things in our country? Why can't we create something & take credit for it? I was a by-chance thing, Satwik-Chirag are by-chance. I am saying this because nobody believed in them. Because nobody put that kind of an effort where anybody could have an expectation till they started winning. I have no idea why do we have such pathetic attitude," said the player, who represented India in the women's & mixed doubles categories at the London & River games .

Jwala is coming up with her own academy in Hyderabad. "The academy will start functioning next month. With 14 courts, it will be biggest in the country & I intend to focus on the quality & training of coaches & not just players' development," she said.
