Mr. Nelson A. Asuncion was a national player in the Philippine badminton team during the 1970’s and 1980’s. He went on to become the founding Head Coach of the Valle Verde Badminton Youth Team (VVBYT). On Oct. 9, 1983 (Sun), during his surprise birthday dinner, Mr. Nelson A. Asuncion officially accepted the offer to be head coach of Valle Verde Badminton Youth Team (VVBYT) to the late Pocholo Ramirez manager then of the Valle Verde Country Club (VVCC). Present were VVCC members and parents.

The composition of Valle Verde Badminton Youth Team (VVBYT) had to be members or a dependent of the club member to be part of the team. The kids all trained for FREE under the Master Coach Nelson. To cover the training expenses like court fees, shuttlecocks, uniform, & equipments, Coach Nelson single handedly looked for friends and eventually companies to help the team with its expenses. Everyone had a chance to join the VVBYT but he had strict guidelines for the team. He is known for the discipline he instills with no compromise. Eventually, VVBYT became the best-club in local youth competition.
