Sport Description

Badminton is a fun, high-energy, and fast-paced game played either individually or on teams of two. Hitting a birdie back-and-forth really gets the heart pumping and is a great way to stay in shape! This event takes place on the Main Deck of the Field House and uses a "play-by" format. Just make sure you have your match completed by the deadline. It's that easy! You can play singles, doubles or both! And, you can even play on two doubles teams (one Men’s or Women’s team, and one Co-Rec team)!
