IE Men’s Rugby did Mo’vember

Written on December 14, 2018 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

To open a series of events organized by the IE Rugby team in tandem with the Charity club and the Student Leadership Team to raise profits and awareness towards the Movember Foundation, IE hosted an exhibition match facing off with London Business School. The match was only the catalyst for a wonderful weekend filled with social gatherings, networking events and school spirit.
For those who are unaware, the Movember foundation strives to increase support and reduce stigma surrounding men’s mental health issues, as well as increase awareness for male-specific illnesses (namely testicular and prostate cancers). The IE rugby team takes men’s health very seriously, and we greatly appreciate all the collective efforts made both on and off campus to raise awareness for this great cause.
The weekend of festivities saw the two teams come together following the match and proceed in a traditional “Tercer Tiempo” where songs were sang and friends were made. The IE rugby team then hosted a Movember event at Boom Room where all the proceeds went directly to the Movember Foundation. In total all our efforts raised over 2000 euros for the foundation.
I would like to take a moment to thank all the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas for their donations! Additionally, I would like to thank the various coordinators and the LBS Rugby team for making this weekend such a success.

Running Club presentation

Written on December 13, 2018 by Campus Life in Sports

“Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest.” – Haruki Murakami
The IE Running Club is a social group for running enthusiasts for all programs of the IE University based in Madrid. The objective of the Club is to bring together people, with abilities ranging from amateurs to serious runners, and help build and grow this community.
The club operates with three different sets of events:

  • Regular Sunday runs – venues alternate between Retiro Park or Casa de Campo
  • Impromptu weekday runs – smaller runs/intervals at Parque Santander
  • Marathon events in Spain – we even have winners amongst us! (more on that in a separate, exclusive post)

The post-run time is also a great opportunity for different programs and intakes to meet each other and discuss the club activities, upcoming races as well as share personal stories of inspiration.

All events are posted on Campus Life, and the group uses WhatsApp as the primary form of communication and coordination. Keeping in touch with the times, all the events are loaded on the school’s Strava community, including the route to be followed.
There is also an active Instagram page, to give you all the right nudges and inspiration to get you moving!
Here’s to making 2019 a more active year for all 🙂

Squash Club Practices

Written on December 12, 2018 by Campus Life in Sports

This Thursday, December 13th the IE Squash club will host its Fourth Training Session at Centro Deportivo Municipal Puente de Vallecas. In Session 4, the club’s advanced players, including its President Martín Bustamante, will facilitate drills with beginner and intermediate members focused specifically on improving movement around the court, a necessary and important skill to advance one’s squash game.  Up until now, training sessions have primarily focused on racquet skills. As consistent with the previous training sessions, we will end with evenly matched practice games to implement learnings and continue to improve match strategy. These practice matches will help members prepare for the upcoming tournament. Following said tournament, the Squash Club will be hosting a networking event to congratulate the winners and get to know each of the members off the court.

We look forward to seeing players of all levels at this week’s training session.

Training Session for Squash Club

Written on December 12, 2018 by Campus Life in Sports

Recently founded, IE Squash Club organized the Third Training Session on Thursday 29th November at Centro Deportivo Municipal Puente de Vallecas. The event hosted players from beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. The training Session started with a guided warm-up and then we reviewed the fundamental guidelines of squash. These coaching lessons were done by our advanced players who compete nationally in their respective countries. Finally, we ended playing full game matches within our level, pushing players’ strength, balance, agility and strategy to the limit.

We are looking forward to continuing the Squash Training Sessions, encouraging all squash players to continue to join us, as we would like to organize a Tournament soon. #IESquashClub
