The South Badminton Club held its first meeting on November 2.

Club members meet Monday J-Blocks in the Field House. Senior and club leader Stephanie Fong described the turnout as “a countless number of people.

Club founders and leaders include Fong, Ismael Algarin, Jaime Qing, and Jason Wu. Due to court unavailability, the club was unable to start sooner.

After acquiring a club advisor, the club leaders received approval from Guidance Counselor Leonid Libenzon and Principal Joel Stembridge.

The group hopes to persuade amateur skill-leveled players to come and play badminton in an intramural environment.
