IE Basketball CLUB RECAP

Written on July 23, 2018 by Campus Life in Sports

Over the past few months the IE Basketball Club has hosted a number weekly practices throughout the term that have provided a number of benefits to our members. IE, as we all know, as a rigorous university that provides academic challenges week in and week out. With the IE Basketball Club we hoped to alleviate some of this stress by providing a casual, fun environment where students from all programs could come to blow off steam. One of the main benefits of this was that there were no set teams, practices, or schedules; people came as they could and played to the best of their abilities. What’s most rewarding about this is that there were no fixed attendees. New members came weekly and it gave everyone an opportunity to expand their network in a casual environment. With the IE Basketball Club we tried our best to mix business with pleasure by opening the court to anyone who was interested! We couldn’t be happier with the results and look forward to continuing in the future.

IESE Games

Every year IE attends the IESE Games in Barcelona, Spain. This past year we placed second during the competition. What was most rewarding about this outcome was that we were able to achieve it without formal practices beforehand. We were able to switch from playing against one another recreationally to playing with each other competitively, a different environment than we were used to. The overall experience was amazing; being able to meet students from different schools in different countries, but experiencing similar situations, was enlightening. This event is one that our members look forward to every year and it’s because it’s a break from routine. A different dynamic, in a different city, with different people is a recipe for a great weekend.
