IE Tennis Club

Written on December 15, 2017 by Campus Life in Sports

With the cold winter days arriving the IE Tennis Club is getting quieter. However, as true tennis lovers such this doesn’t discourage us to hit the court.

We have organized our session in a two-fold fashion. One is to match and meet players casually whenever it suits their calendars. The other is a tennis ladder that organises competitions amongst players acco rding to their level. Thanks to our very active member base ranging from professionals to beginners the Tennis Club is able to match players with similar levels for the ladder games. Also, we are happy that we could implement the idea for the ladder into our Club which emerged from our members itself.

Our plans are to keep practicing in the beautiful sun of Madrid after the winter break and organise more sessions with a professional trainer. We plan to bucket members according to their level so we can arrange separate courts for different levels, with or without a trainer. Another exciting target is the collective attendance of the Madrid Open taking place in May 2018.

We are very proud of our diverse community who keeps enriching the IE tennis experience and looking forward to welcome more members!

Pick up your racquet and join IE Tennis Club!

Autumn for the IE Tennis Club.. Getting ready for MBAT!

Written on December 15, 2017 by Campus Life in Sports

After a busy Autumn, the IE tennis club is looking forward to its winter physical preparation before coming back on courts early next year. Objectives lying in front of us are the MBAT 2018, which is the main sports event for Business schools held Barcelona. During the MBAT tournament, Tennis is played in the Davis cup format and gathers around 20 teams.

IE Tennis club has welcome new members from all levels this year and a new coordinators’ team is in place. Nata, Henri and Louis will replace Camille and Joseph from January 2018 onwards.

The craze for the tennis team has been quite important in the last few weeks, with players from every program gathering to play tennis together. Students from the MiM, the MiF, the IMBA, Master in Big Data etc have enjoyed the Madrid sun, playing in various locations such as Retiro, Pradillo, where the courts are of high quality.

We have also created a WhatsApp group for club members as a communication medium to meet, practice and play tennis. The group has been very active, and participants are bringing a lot of ideas. One of them concluded to bring a tennis teacher for players to level up and improve their technique.

In addition, an informal tennis championship is taking place between all members, allowing us to play in friendly competition and improve our technique and mental aptitudes.

2018, IE tennis club is coming for you !

Football Memories

Written on December 14, 2017 by Campus Life in Sports

This Sunday, the IE Women’s Football Club looks forward to its last practice of 2017 and its team celebration dinner. It has been an incredible year practicing together each week, gathering for pickup games against local players and competing at IESE in Barcelona and MBAT in Paris. The field was a place to make friends with girls from other Masters programs and to leave behind the stress of school. Let’s enjoy a fun night together and keep the momentum going into 2018!

MBAT Champions 2017: Preparing for 2018

Written on December 14, 2017 by Campus Life in Sports

This past May, the IE Womens Football Club took gold at MBAT 2017 in Paris. The intense match made its way to penalty kicks and ended in a dramatic IE victory over Oxford. Since September, the team has been preparing for MBAT 2018. The transition to new coordinators from different Masters programs in addition to more marketing for the club has doubled the number of players at practice each Sunday. Furthermore, having two rockstar coaches from the Men’s football team has been a big help and has greatly improved everyone’s skills. Graduating students wish the team well and look forward to IE defending its MBAT championship title.

MBAT – HEC Paris May 2017

IE Rugby Club is where I met most of my IE friends from other intakes, sections and programs” (Argentinean from IMBA Jan2017 Intake). We train every Monday at Hortaleza Rugby Club and we organize extra activities to foster team building.

November 4th, we coordinated to have various IE players in a match with Lions. We had a great game winning putting in almost 50 points. International Relations Kiwi import Nick Hutton won man of the match.

November 11th was an international rugby day. Most of the team assembled at James Joyce Bar to see several international test matches and have some drinks. We had our captain Adam Mitchell-Heggs celebrating a victory of England vs Los Pumas of Antonio Feeney. Our Sprinboks Qhawe Ngonyama and Dirk suffered the match between his national team and Ireland. We all ended up on a classic beer contest with Samuel Lewis Ksiazkiewicz and Robert Hilliard as US reps and the September intake showing outstanding skills for this.

This was a fantastic way to finish a year in which we had second places in MBAT and IESE Games. Looking forward to new challenges!

Let’s continue playing, having fun and networking!
