Tamilnadu badminton association was formed approximately in 1960,s by Shri.Baldev Ji& Shri.Vinod Sharma, the association was active for the couple of
years then went into silence for the couple of years.
Then in the early 70's Mr.Selvaraj revived the association and held many
tournaments in the corporation stadium. Remember those days that Mr.Prakesh
Pudkone won the 1st Senior and Junior National in Chennai for the first time
beating Mr.Suresh Gayal in senior and Mr.Divender Ahuja in Junior.
In 80's Shri.Vivek Goinka headed the association and this was the goldern period
of T.N.B.A. He produced great National Players like Mr.Partho ganguli,
Mr.Chengeppa,the brothers Mickel and Edvin Srinivasan, in the ladies the
sisiters Poornima Rao & Radha Rao and Usha Balamore brought great Laurels to
Tamil Nadu. As Shri.Vivek wanted to move to Mumbai the association was handed
over to Shri.Ashok Bajaj, I have brought Badminton in every district and I glad
to inform you that, all the district are active in Tamilnadu, we also bought
many coaches and many Umpires into Tamilnadu and held all major Nationals and
