Now playing at MRU rec
School has barely begun but it’s already crunch time as far as studying goes. For any students looking to clear their heads and expend some extra energy in the gym, why not try something a little different?
Why not try squash, dodgeball or flag football?
The Mount Royal squash club has been around for about five years, said club president and longtime player Dave Cunningham.
The squash club is having an open house Sept. 24, a chance for students to get a look at what the sport is all about. Two high- level matches will be featured one men’s, one women’s.
As far as dodgeball goes, Andre Bordage, intramural assistant coordinator for Mount Royal Recreation, said there has been excitement and “good feedback” when it comes to the much-loved sport. He added that dodgeball has gained an “international reach.”
As well, flag football has returned and will be run outside until the weather deteriorates. Although both intramurals have filled up quickly, registration begins again in December and will close midway through January. Interested students and staff can sign up online at the Mount Royal Recreation website, over the phone with a customer service representative or at the customer service desk in person.
