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.

Interview with a Club: IE Basketball Club

Written on July 8, 2013 by Campus Life in Sports

Who are we?

The main objective of our club is to spend some time together outside of the school, do some sport to be fit, meet new people, and of course, have a good time playing basketball.

Current Coordinators

johannes_hinschJohannes Hinsch – IMBA November 2012 intake, German. Johannes is tall as hell.

 

estornesJon Estornés – IMBA April 2013 intake, Spanish. Jon started playing at the age of 12 and has not stopped ever since. Genuinely interested in basketball he is always keen to chat about NBA!

 

pierre_landolf_0Pierre Landolt – IMBA November 2012 intake, Swiss. Pierre has been playing basketball since a pretty young age but never in a club. As Jon, he’s also keen to chat about NBA (rooting for the Lakers).

Club Activities

We play all Wednesdays (normally at Gimnasio Moscardó, not far from the school) and sometimes we also play on Thursdays. The number of people who come to play is growing every week and sometimes we are more than 20 players.

Our Vision

We are planning to organize a full day tournament followed by some trophies for the winners and pizza for everyone (will keep you updated on that!). Another activity we want to organize is a 3×3 tournament and a 3 point shoot-out contest.

Get in touch and participate!

There’s a Facebook group that all IE students can join. They just need to subscribe and they will be able to see all the updates and write their comments. The Facebook Group’s wall is regularly updated with all the relevant information about the Club’s activities, so it’s the best way to be kept in the loop.

Team Jersey (Medium)The teams of IESE 1, IESE 2, ESADE, EADA and IE were competing very close in the first round. After 3 games back-to-back and supported by the cheering power of our Women Football Team, the IE team won all  the games and was set for the final on Sunday.

Team Medals (Medium)On Sunday, the team of MIM and IMBA April/November players had to play against the host (IESE 1) on their own court. After 40 nerv-racking minutes, the IE team won by 9 points.

Thanks to…
Cristian, Arturo, Shai, Pierre, Kyle, Johannes, Abdallah, Fernando and Steffen.

Special thanks to Tim, who smashed his ankle and could not join us for Barcelona.
