Student Life Center, Court 5

Badminton Club featured in RIT Reporters

On a Friday evening, if you navigate into the Student Life Center (SLC), you will pass four courts of basketball or volleyball with swishing racquets and zooming shuttles on the very far court. Up to 16 players at once will be crammed onto the basketball court that is covered with four badminton courts. Yet a lot of students probably don’t know that RIT has a badminton club, let alone a competitive team.
