  • In 2001, his father asked him to join a badminton training centre in Hyderabad. He joined a badminton academy and participated in various inter-school badminton competitions.
  • In 2007, he participated in the Asian Junior Championships in the men’s singles category and won various medals.
  • He had a serious back injury in 2011, and after a complete diagnosis by doctors, it was detected that he had a spinal bone degeneration. The doctors then advised him a bed rest for three weeks, and they even asked him to quit badminton. In an interview, while remembering those days, Sumeeth said,

    It was 2010-2011, I was a top 5 India player in men’s singles. One day there was discomfort in my back and it turned out that there were air bubble gaps in the bones of my spinal cord. I was told to quit sports. I consulted around 10 doctors but none could give me a solution. I was bedridden for around 20 days. Even to go to the washroom, I had to take support and there were fears of lower body paralysis but I was not ready to quit. After a few weeks, I started to try out things. Each day I tried a new way. I tried ayurvedic and everything possible and slowly figured out a way. Ultimately rehab, exercise and following a strict regime helped. I had to give up singles but after 3-4 years, I felt I was getting better.”

  • In 2012, he represented India in the men’s singles category at the China Super Series, but due to his medical condition, he shifted to the doubles category in further matches.
