Justin Lee ready to smash the birdie

Carlmont’s Badminton team is having their annual a Badminton Hit-a-thon on March 10 in the main gym from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Similar to a walk-a-thon, badminton players will rally and play games to raise money to cover costs for uniforms and transportation. All badminton team members, from Varsity to JV attend this event.

“At the hit-a-thon, people can rally and play games. In the past we have set up a video game station in the corner of the gym for those who would like to take a break from all the action. Players can play as long as they want within the time from 11 am to 5 pm,” stated Captain of Varsity Badminton team Rachel Lin.

“I’m planning to participate in the badminton hit-a-thon. I’m going to see how many times I can hit the birdie before it falls down, said Iris Choi. “The money I earn will be used to cover the cost of the uniforms, since they are quite expensive.”

On Wednesday, badminton players received the forms to ask donations from family and friends. Sponsors can pay “x” amount of dollars for every hour the badminton players rally.

“The money benefits the badminton team since we need funds to subsidize for uniforms, birds, nets and transportation. This is our only major fundraiser, so I hope we can raise enough money to cover all the costs,” stated Lin.

Due to budget cuts, sport teams do not have enough money to cover all the cost for uniforms or transportation fees. This year’s badminton uniforms cost around $80.

“The badminton uniforms are more expensive this year because it’s from Yonex, a company that specializes in badminton. However, students only have to buy the uniform once instead of every single year. I hope the badminton hit-a-thon will allow the players to lower the costs,” stated Coach Liz Chun.

Badminton players hope that many of their friends and family will come and support the team.

“I hope that my friends and family will come support me and everyone else on the team. We’re going to work really hard to earn the money, so it would be nice to have some support. Plus, it would be a lot of fun!” exclaimed Choi.

Friends or family can support badminton players through donations or showing up for support. The main gym will be open to the public for people who would like to play badminton with the students as well.
