There are 5 age groups in which tournaments are conducted. Under 10, 13, 15, 17 and 19. At Karnataka level, a typical tournament goes through 3 rounds of qualification. These qualification matches are typically 1 game of 21 points or 30 points. After 3 such rounds, participants enter what is referred to as the Main Draw. When a player has played a sufficient number of Main Draw matches, he is given a bye through the qualification rounds and goes straight to the main draw. Srikar is now a regular in the main draw. This means that he does not have to go through the qualifying rounds. In the last 3 tournaments he has played in, he has reached the quarter finals. The level of competition has to be seen to be believed. He is consistently ranked in the top 5 in Karnataka u-13 in tournaments that happen (singles) and in the top 3 in u-13 doubles.
