Good health is what most people aspire to achieve. As part of the school’s wellness program for its employees, ICI-Iligan conducted a whole-day Badminton Tournament last November 19, 2011 at Synergy Metro Sports Club Bacayo, Iligan City from 8 am to 5 pm. This tournament is the culmination of the every Saturday wellness activity and is organized to boost the immune system of employees and at the same time give them a chance to meet and compete with other players.
In any competition, a warm-up activity is prepared for the players to stretch their muscles and to prevent cramps during the game. Headed by the school’s Human Resource (HR) Officer, Mrs. Leah Jan C. Aguilo, everyone danced to the beat of “Teach Me How to Dougie” by Cali Swag. Employees gathered around and crowd the place to group with their partners and friends. They warmed things up and prepared themselves for the tournament. Then, they talked of each other’s dancing ability with some laughs of course.
The game is divided into 3 categories namely; Category A, Category B and Category C. Synergy has a total of 6 game courts so players were able to start their game immediately.
Badminton requires great eye-hand coordination to deliver a great smash or simply return the shuttlecock in a clever way. Pairs cooperated with each other and looked after one another’s move. They even showed patience towards their partners when they missed the shuttlecock.
After the whole-day of intense games, here were the winners:
Donna Key Destura
Roy Michael Sumampong
Ethel Luz Medado
