Chalmers badmintonklubb

INFORMATION

Everyone is welcome to Chalmers Badmintonklubb – all skill levels and ambitions. The practices are currently organized by two coaches who both love badminton, but are intermediate players themselves. That’s why we all help out during practices when we play. Experienced players assist and all players prepare for sessions in advance (flipped classroom style) so to make the most of our playing time.

Our vision is to create an opportunity for Chalmers students to play, meet new friends and up their game. 

How it works

  1.   Sign-up to and pay in advance for each session
  2.   Check out the curriculum in advance
  3.   Show up and have fun

How we play

Our focus lies on foundation and technique. We believe that all players improve by getting the basics right and perfecting it. We also practice formations, tactics and advanced techniques from time to time. At the end of the sessions we play and try to apply what we have learned. 

Every now and then we have tournaments and other activities. If you are curious about our curriculum, e-mail coaches: badminton@cis-chalmers.se

Try us without being a member
Yes, you can come once, twice or all sessions. You may join once without being a CIS-member as well. So there’s nothing to lose!

Signing up
All CIS-members who have marked Badminton in the membership automatically get invites on e-mail. We also post sessions on our facebook page.

Get to know your coaches – part 2, Noelle Nagano.

:: Backhand or forehand serve?

Backhand because my forehand serve still sucks.

:: Why did you start to play badminton?

I don’t really remember, but the first time a held a racket was the summer of 2018. My friend introduced me, he had tons of patience and thanks to him I got a hang of it eventually. I started playing regularly during fall 2019. But it was all a coincidence.

:: Finish this sentence:
"A life without badminton is like a life without (…)"

…oxygen, equally impossible.

:: New year resolutions you’re gonna break (or already broken).

Ain’t nobody got time for that, I’m on my way to badminton practice.

:: Tell us something no one knows about you

I was rejected into the Swedish police academy. Twice. And yet I have a license to kill.

:: What do you do in your spare time?

Suffer while waiting for the next practice. Yup, that sad. Sometimes I try to take pictures. Occasionally play the piano. And I do love a good pub quiz. Join me next time!

:: What do you do as a coach?

I organize our practices, book courts, manage sign-ups and stay in touch with the players.

And what do you really do as a coach?

I trawl Youtube for the best badminton tutorials for our members. Also make master plans with Lisa on how the club one day will rule the wor..I mean, win student championships

:: Banana and curry on pizza?
…and pineapple please.

* If badminton didn’t exist, what would you play/do instead?

Cry while eating chips and become fat. Or own a horse ranch in Egypt. Probably both.

Get to know your coaches – part 1, Lisa Wu.

:: Backhand or forehand serve?

Forehand (hopefully the one I’m playing against is not good at smashes)

:: Why did you start to play badminton?

My parents forced me into it when I was a kid. Love them <3

:: Finish this sentence:
"A life without badminton is like a life without (…)"

…a life!!? And rice, and dried tofu in vacuum packages with a little spice but not too much.

:: New year resolutions you’re gonna break (or already broken).

Starting on getting 4 bachelor degrees while having 2 jobs

:: Tell us something no one knows about you

I’ve been on the roof of the mall, Åhlens City, in Stockholm and got caught. The view wasn’t worth it.

:: What do you do in your spare time for real?

I think I use 90% of my time planning my time. Apart from that I’d say guitar, gym, friends, eat, youtube and… can I say badminton?

:: What do you do as a coach?

I’m doing everything Noelle does, except from that I’ve not done any of what Noelle has done yet.

:: And what do you really do as a coach?

Serious stuff in front of the camera that in somehow become fails to post on instagram.

:: Banana and curry on pizza?
…ew

:: If badminton didn’t exist, what would you play/do instead?

No badminton? If badminton wouldn’t have existed I would have known that something is wrong and invented it.

Some quick news and updates before we leave this decade(!):

1. We start sessions again 12th Jan 2020 15:00-17:00 at Fjäderborgen. All members of CIS and who have marked Badminton as their sport of choice will receive invites to practices. Sign up here if you haven’t: cis-chalmers.se/bli-medlem/

2. As of January, we have a new coach as well, so the two of us will be able to better accommodate the practices and hopefully organise even more activities. She is the one on the right who can’t keep a straight face and her name is Lisa Wu.

3. We started an instagram account two days ago – we’ll post photos and videos from our sessions and also, most likely, less serious stuff too. Tips on good tutorials and what not. Stay tuned and help us get started: www.instagram.com/chalmersbadminton/

See you in 2020!

CIS - Chalmers Badmintonklubb

Today we had a our Christmas session with a mini tournament (congrats to Hugo and Axel, our champions) and we finished with some fika and talks about the next semester.

This is what was covered:
We will continue to play on Sundays but for 2 hours ideally and therefore start at 15:00 instead of 16:00. I will ensure that this is possible before making it official.

There is an interest in organising a weekend camp at another location, coach will look into this further.

During spring there will be student championsships held in Jönköping. Of course we want to show the world that we are a force to be counted on: studentiaden.se/ Save the date!

I also asked for an assisting coach in order to keep up our planned session, especially if we increase playing time and want to organize more events. Talks have been initiated already!

Thank you for a great semester and have a merry Christmas!

/Coach
