Deepak was born and raised in Chamaria village in Rohtak, Haryana. He lost his mother when he was just four years old. His father and elder sister raised him. Unfortunately, tragedy struck once again when he had hardly become a teenager. Hooda lost his father as well in 2013.

Coming from a humble family, Hooda didn’t have a financial backup and had to start working to support himself. Hooda had to discontinue his school and started working as a teacher. He played kabaddi in evenings. Those years were hard, but the young lad was determined.

Deepak Hooda Pro Kabaddi Carrer

Deepak Niwas Hooda is an Indian kabaddi player and has been one of the most successful raiders in the Pro Kabaddi League. He made his debut in the inaugural season of Pro Kabaddi League. He also won a Gold medal in 2016 Kabaddi World Cup. 

Deepak is one of the best all-rounders of the Pro Kabaddi League because of his reading of the match situation. Hooda has 14 Super 10s, the fifth-most in the league.

A gold medal winner in the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup, and one of the fittest players in VIVO Pro Kabaddi, Deepak Hooda has consistently been making his mark in the sport. After the first two seasons, he stepped up as the leading raider for Puneri Paltan in Seasons 3, 4 and 5.

He also topped the Do-Or-Die raid points chart in the latter campaign indicating his ability to cope under pressure. He is one of the most capable all-rounders, and his rise has been meteoric.

For the upcoming Pro Kabaddi Season 7, he has been retained by Jaipur Pink Panthers in the list of Elite Retained Players.

Deepak Niwas Hooda International Career:

Hooda couldn’t have had a better start to his career. He made his Indian team debut at the South Asian Games 2016 and went on to have his golden moment by winning the gold medal.

He was also positive about a gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games as well.

“There’s no lack of quality in the team’s defence. Players come and go, but the team remains the same. Today, I’m a part of the team. But tomorrow, perhaps some younger player will take my place. All we want to do is to win gold for India at the Asian Games.”

Unfortunately, the team had to settle for a bronze.

An integral part of the team, Hooda takes dual roles for National duty. He practices with the raiders as well as defenders. So national camps turn out to be very hectic for the talented all-rounder.
