Time Between Past And Present
Shuttlers’ Sparring Session
By Gail Chia
Executive, Strategic Communications
It was 8.30 am on 30 December 2017 and training was about to start. Twenty-nine alumni and 30 secondary and post-secondary players stood in neat rows in Singapore Sports School's Badminton Hall. A battle between past and present, adults and youth, experienced players and budding champions was about to begin.
Among the alumni present, three had represented Singapore at the Southeast Asian Games and won medals; six were formerly in the national team. Present student-athletes were soon able to tap onto years of international experience and skills. At the end of an intense training and sparring session, knowledge was exchanged as the alumni inspired their juniors to remain committed to their sport dreams, as well as their role of a student-athlete in the Sports School.
During the session, memories were reminisced as the alumni played in the same hall they did years ago, sharing with the student-athletes about their experiences in the Sports School as they caught up on school improvements.
