This semester Intermural Sports offered for the first time IM badminton. Fellow Elm staff member, photo editor Hailey Craig’17, and I joined together to make a team. We were not sure what to expect or what the actual rules for the game were, but we were very excited to give it a try. We both had played badminton before, but normal at cookouts where rules do not matter and we just play to have fun. Luckily for us, the rules were pretty easy to follow and we both picked it up pretty quick. Although we normally did not win, we always had fun playing. The IM officials make games super easy along with always being able to answer questions and help determine difficult calls. Neither Hailey nor I have played a lot of IM sports, but Badminton was a lot of fun and super easy to play.
Keep a look out for emails about upcoming IM sports opportunities and make sure to give it a try. They are a lot of fun and are a great way to meet new people.
