Badminton

Description

Badminton is the fastest racquet sport in the world and in just one match a player can travel over 2km. It’s fun, fast, and furious! It’s the perfect chance to tweak your badminton skills, make new friends, learn about badminton, and obviously – have a great time. Play badminton in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Special events help our players improve their skills and make new friends. Whether you’re playing to relieve stress or you have your eyes on our tournament gold, this club welcomes new and returning members!

About the President

Hi! My name is Jill and I’m pleased to be Badminton Club’s president this year. I’m a fifth year in MIT with a minor in Math. I like badminton a lot, obviously, but in my spare time I also enjoy doing graphic design, hiking, and reading. I’ve been playing badminton since I was thirteen. I played on my high school team, where we competed in the BC High School Provincials. I joined the club when I was a First Year and I never looked back! It’s a great way to meet people with similar interests as well as to hone your badminton skills. Everyone’s looking to become a better player, so it’s a positive environment to be in. I’ve made some great memories and close friends in Badminton Club and I hope to pass on my experience to other members.
