The UA Badminton President made an announcement regarding their schedule change.
“Our hours have been cut this coming fall. Old Main is being renovated, and the Bear Down Gym is being used temporarily for offices, thus forcing all clubs that practice in the Bear Down Gym to relocate to the Rec Center. This change affects all clubs’ hours for the duration of the renovation.
Our official hours will be: Fridays 6pm-10pm, Sundays 10am-12pm. We will no longer have Monday nights. Please adhere to this schedule in the fall to ensure that we are not in conflict with other clubs or the Rec Center. I know cutting back is always difficult, but each club is officially only allocated 6 hours of practice a week, meaning that we have been fortunate to have more up to now. We will notify you of any changes in the future. This schedule will go into effect August 20th, the start of the fall semester.”
