Who are we?
IE Badminton Club is a unique place for unique people. Badminton helps not only to switch our focus from studies to networking and physical activity, but also to generate or advance skills. We believe that this sport develops both attention focus and strength. From managerial point of view, badminton teaches us how to take risks and what are the consequences of our actions. In addition, we as players develop several skills that are essential in our personal and professional lives, some of them are: goal-orientation, time-management, effective usage of resources and team-work. It is not a club for badminton professionals, IE Badminton Club is for everybody!
