This attracts players of all levels and league matches are played in a friendly, yet competitive spirit. This activity takes place at the Concordia Gym on the Loyola campus. For more information please contact Concordia Recreation

In order to play with the competitive badminton team, you will be required to register for the Sunday badminton offered at the Loyola campus. Following this you will have the opportunity to be evaluated and considered for the competitive team that plays in a western Montreal league (LBA badminton league). If selected, you will play on the team at home (Loyola campus) and against other teams away from Concordia in the western part of Montreal.


Grass fit

With a few simple tools, pull-up bars, parallel bars, TRX, benches and most importantly your own body you will have a fun and dynamic workout. Classes will start off with a dynamic warm-up with mobility and agility drills aimed at preparing you for the workout to come. The workout itself will be short, intense and efficient. Some days will be more leg focused, others more upper body, all will be cardio intensive with few rest periods. All levels are welcomed as you will go at your own pace.
