The UMD Badminton Club is a university sports club that is focused on promoting badminton at the University and local Duluth community, as well as playing competitive badminton games. We provide UMD students and community members with practice times and equipment for individuals to play badminton and improve their skills in the game. We also host several events during the academic school year such badminton tournaments and social get togethers that build community. We recently hosted a successful badminton tournament with North Dakota State University and the Duluth community and also traveled to Michigan Technological University for a badminton tournament in Fall 2015. We currently have approximately 20 members in our club and continually are growing as a club.
We are looking for $1,500 to upgrade our badminton rackets and host more badminton tournaments at UMD. Our current badminton rackets are at the end of their lifecycle, with many of the strings breaking and frames bending. We must upgrade our badminton rackets soon or else we will not be able to provide our club members with useable badminton rackets. We are planning to host two badminton tournaments each semester (four tournaments in an academic school year) and each tournament would cost approximately $300. The funds will be used to purchase medals for winners and runner-ups of each division (Men's Singles, Women's Singles, Men's Doubles, Women's Doubles, Mixed Doubles), prizes for Men's and Women's Singles, and food for the participants. These tournaments would benefit us by providing members with high competition level games, bringing the UMD badminton community together, and promoting badminton awareness for future members.
The funds will be used to purchase $300 worth of badminton rackets and hosting four tournaments during the year. Your funds will allow Badminton Club to grow and achieve our goals as an organization.
Thank you in advance for your support!
