The Graduate Student Association held a badminton match at JAAS Gym Center on the morning of March 26, 2010. The badminton is a very popular sport in China, and it is fun to play and watch. The theme of the game was "Shuttlecocks Flying, Friends Coming".
More than 80 graduate students swung the badminton rackets. After more than 4 hours' intense competition, Zhao Pandeng from the Institute of Veterinary Medicine grabbed the trophy of the men's singles and Dong Shaoling from the Institute of Food Crops won the first prize in women's singles.
Through this badminton game, the graduate students from different institutes had an opportunity to talk and know with each other, and relax themselves from the heavy study load. This type of activity always receives extensive attention and sees increased participation of JAAS graduate students.
