CSUSB has several fun sport clubs on campus, but there is only one that allows you to play Badminton with other like-minded students.
Badminton sports club offers their members a unique experience to learn a sport with other Coyotes.
The sport of badminton has been around more than 2,000 years and was adopted into the Olympics Games in 1992.
Ashley Pena is the president of the club at CSUSB.
“We are a recreational and competitive club because we allow members who wish to compete against other schools the chance to join our competitive team throughout the year,” said Pena.
The club participates in several different scrimmages and tournaments against other colleges who participate in competitive play with one another.
“The competitive team travels around to compete against other schools like UCLA, UCI, UCR, USC and others to participate in matches and tournaments year round,” said Pena.
The club meets up to twice a week to practice and develop their skills with recreational play against each other.
Membership fees are $25 annually for recreational play members and $40 annually for competitive play members.
The practices are scheduled for every Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:00-11:00 p.m.
All practices are located in The Den (PE 100) and are open for any Coyotes trying to learn the sport.
“Students can join by simply walking into one of our practices or by emailing me at [email protected] from the REC Center and OrgSync websites,” said Pena.
The club is a good way to progress your skills or learn the sport of badminton with your fellow Coyotes.
