Thats right, the spring sport season comes around once more, and one of the most popular spring sports at SMHS is Badminton.
The team is divided into two groups: exhibition, whose badminton players just practice and aren’t obligated to play during games. If they have extra time at the end, they usually practice at the games.
The Varsity badminton group has an obligation to go to every game, “They are a bit more competitive than exhibition, but I think exhibition is more fun,” said Josh Tan.
During practices Badminton players first warm up their legs by running around the gym, then they practice playing Badminton. “It’s not too fun to run, but its fun being around your friends.”
The first game of Badminton starts on March 6, and players are really excited to play their first game of the season. A total of over 70 people tried out for the Badminton team, and they are about 30 players on the varsity team.
In a game of badminton, there are several categories in which players play: between individuals and doubles where 2 boys face two boys, two girls face two girls, and also a mix between boys and girls. Once Varsity is done playing, exhibition plays until the time is up. Do you want to play Badminton?
