Some Lesser Known Facts About Treesa Jolly

  • Treesa Jolly is an Indian badminton player, who mainly plays in the women’s doubles and mixed doubles categories. In 2022, she qualified for the Commonwealth Games organised in Birmingham, England.
  • When she was 5 years old, she started playing badminton under the guidance of her father, who was a physical education teacher at that time. Her father trained her in badminton for almost six years and then decided to continue her training under the Indian badminton coach Anil Ramachandran. Initially, she used to play with her sister in women’s doubles. During an interview, she talked about making her career in badminton. She said,

    When I started out, hardly anyone played the sport back in my village. When my father started encouraging me and my sister to play badminton, a lot of people questioned him. Many suggested that it was of no use and that no one from our region would make a career out of it. But my father didn’t pay heed to any of it and kept training us and offered his full support.”

  • At the age of 7, she participated in the U-10 State Championship held in Kannur, Kerala.
  • She then started focusing more on doubles categories as she used to perform better in them. In an interview, while talking about it, she said,

    In singles, I had good performances at the State level, but at the National level I used to reach the semifinals just once or twice a year, there was no consistency. I was doing better in doubles.”

  • In the early 2020s, she joined Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy, Hyderabad. At the academy, she met Gayatri Gopichand, who is a badminton player and daughter of the former Indian badminton player Pullela Gopichand. After watching the game style of Treesa and Gayatri, Pullela and Arun Vishnu (badminton coach) decided to team up the girls for women’s mixed doubles.

Even though I have a scholarship from the Sports Ministry, there are still a lot of financial difficulties. My father had to quit his job to help with my career because he couldn’t concentrate on both. But the fact that we’ve come this far gives us confidence. I’m very thankful to my parents and my family.”
