Chirag’s Early Life

He started playing badminton at the age of 7 at Goregaon Sports Club.

Like every other Indian family, Chirag’s family also wanted him to pursue science and opt for engineering. His father supported him and told that a person is never successful if he only opts for engineering. There are other fields in which you can be successful.

This helped him a lot and after 10th he took commerce as his stream and could give ample time for is badminton practise.

Chirag Shetty’s Career

He has gained amazing success in Men’s Doubles with his partner in crime, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy.

It was very difficult for both of them to play together at the start as both the players had a liking of attacking from the back court. One of them had to adjust and cope up with the skill of attacking from the net. Chirag was the one who decided to adapt and started learning the techniques to attack from the front.


In 2017 they were no way near World Rank 200 and within a time span of 12 months they are in the top 30. Chirag and Satwiksairaj are currently ranked 25 in the world. His highest world ranking is 18 in June 2018.

Chirag admires Prakash Padukone the most as he got inspired from the success of the legendary badminton player.

In one his interviews he stated that his mother was not in his favour to choose badminton as his career but the day he handed the Commonwealth Games Silver Medal to her, the expressions on her face were priceless.
