Till today, badminton remains to be the fastest racquet sport in the world. If fast paced games are your thing you will definitely want to consider joining Republic Polytechnic’s Badminton Interest Group (Badminton IG). In a sport such as badminton that requires speed, agility, power and stamina, trainings like ours need to be holistic and target all of these areas.
Since its beginnings in 2003, the IG has participated in numerous tournaments in all levels. Every year we select the best to represent our school at the Polytechnic-Institute (POL-ITE) and Institute-Varsity-Polytechnic (IVP) games as well as other regional-level tournaments that put their abilities to the test. With the hard work and determination of our team, we have been able to achieve joint champions for both the male and female teams in the 2014 POL-ITE games and IVP champion for our male team in the year 2015.
The team gathers two to three times a week to train together and bond in the process. With the help and guidance from our coach and advisor, we have been able to arrange multiple overseas trips that have allowed us to receive exposure in the sport in other countries and bond as a team. The team champions good sportsmanship, interpersonal relationships and as well as bringing sporting glory to RP in whatever competitions we partake in.
