Her father was honoured with Arjuna Award for having displayed excellence in his sport. One of the youngest and talented badminton players of the contemporary times, Sindhu has featured in top 10 in the world badminton rankings for the most part of 2014. P.V sindhu started playing badminton from the age of eight, after she drew inspiration from Pullela Gopichand’s victory in All England Open Badminton Championship in 2001. That’s the reason why she chose badminton over volleyball although her parents were professional volleyball players. Her initial apprenticeship started with Mehboob Ali at the badminton courts of Indian Railway Institute Of Signal Engineering and Telecommunications in Secunderabad (सिकंदराबाद). Later, she joined Pullela Gopichand’s badminton academy to further enhance her sporting skills.
