The past two weeks for the Senior badminton team have been rigorous. Training intensity has reached new heights, with both fitness and technical training being the focus. A recent match versus rival Claremont saw the SMUS Team narrowly edge them by a score of 6-5. Although it was a win, it was too close for comfort. Thank goodness that Monica Lee, Robbie Thomas, and Michael Ip rose to the occasion.
The team now takes a bit of a rest this week before things really get going again in February. The first half of that month is filled with all kinds of badminton fixtures, and it also looks like a future tour to the Okanagan in mid-February has now been confirmed.
Coach Hunt is pleased with the team’s progress and he is confident that the team will peak at just the right time.
