Fall 2017 Badminton Club

Hi all,

Welcome back to the MIT Badminton Club for Fall 2017. I am Jeffrey Mei, the treasurer, and this year's President and Vice President are Reetik Sahu and Alex Ji respectively. You can contact us at mitbac-officers[at]mit.edu.

The MIT Badminton Club will be resuming club practices on September 5 at 7:30pm. This year, we will be charging dues of $20 each semester to encourage regular attendance to practices. Please make this out as a cheque to MIT Badminton Club OR bring as cash to the first practice . We cannot accept electronic payment at this point. Alternatively, you can contact me (mjmei[at]mit.edu) to set up a time to drop it off on campus.

Due to damage to the Rockwell Cage floor, only players with non-marking soles will be allowed to play during club times. If you are not sure about your shoes, please ask a club officer. To prevent injury to players, we will not allow players with non-athletic attire (e.g. jeans) to play during club-reserved times.

Club Sports has introduced a new online waiver system (http://clubsports.mit.edu/join-a-club/) - please note that due to MIT regulations, you will not be allowed to play unless you have completed the online waiver. The new online waiver is different to last year's, and so all players, including returning ones, should complete this waiver online.

Please also sign up for the new mailing list here: http://mailman.mit.edu/mailman/listinfo/mitbad

In short, to sign up, please 1) do the online waiver, 2) sign up for mailing list, 3) pay club dues.

For players looking for a more casual playing experience, you can play during open recreational hours (http://web.mit.edu/athletics/www/recschedule.pdf) which does not require you to be in the MIT Badminton Club.
