IFG Roundup: Volleyball (Men)

IFG Roundup: Volleyball (Men)

To shamelessly steal the opening line from last year’s IFG article, it is that time of the year again where 12 sweaty men pound balls in a hot, stuffy room. That’s right, volleyball season is in! The men’s team this year comprised of Andre Koh, Norman Aziz, Hyrum Li, Gan Xian Kai (all year 4),...

IFG Roundup: Soccer (Men)

Kids, it was Semester 1 of AY 16/17 and I’m going to tell you the story of how the Law Men’s Football team started its long and arduous journey to the summit (no pun intended). Our boys fought valiantly and courageously over 3 (THREE!!!) weekends, so the least you could do is to read until...
IFG Roundup: Reversi

IFG Roundup: Reversi

The Law Reversi team kicked off its campaign for the 2016 Inter Faculty Games by chartering into the unfamiliar place that is the Kent Ridge Campus. With traditional powerhouses such as FASS, Science and Computing fielding veteran players, it looked like an interesting contest to come. The team comprised of, from left to right, Zamiq...

IFG Roundup: Women’s Basketball

Whoever said that there was a “calm before the storm” prior to a great event clearly hasn’t seen an IFG women’s basketball tournament before. Picture yourself walking towards the indoor sport halls at UTown on a Sunday morning and being greeted with an amalgamation of different sounds. The squeaking of shoes scrapping against the floor...

IFG Roundup: Women’s Soccer

On 3rd September, with 3 subs, we scored 3 goals. Just kidding about the last part, we scored 0 goals. At the start of the day, it was evident how unprepared we were compared to the other faculties – half of us didn’t even have cleats and almost all of us were late. However, we...
IFG Roundup: Badminton

IFG Roundup: Badminton

Our Legal Eagles of badminton, placed in Group A, found themselves in the Group of Death from the get-go. After losing 0-5 to Business (fielding an entire team of Varsity-level players) and 1-4 to Engineering (last year’s finalists), they gave everything they had to squeeze out a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Computing, giving a 1-2...

IFG Roundup: Women’s Volleyball

Preliminaries This year’s team was the best we had fielded in four years. This fact was evident in the preliminary matches against Computing and SDE. Indeed, “everyone could play because we were that good” (team captain Hannah) – these matches were a valuable opportunity for the reserves and substitutes to gain more experience, hopefully in...
IFG Roundup: Men's Handball

IFG Roundup: Men’s Handball

During the preliminary rounds of Inter Faculty Games (IFG) Handball, one law school spectator expressed her disbelief that handball was an actual Olympic sport. She questioned the use of handball glue to help with gameplay, and whilst I tried my best to cover my extreme indignation, I smiled, nodded, and turned my attention back to...

IFG Roundup: Men’s Floorball

2016 has been a year of sporting miracles. In May, the world watched spellbound as Leicester City mounted the summit of the English Premier League. In August, Joseph Schooling made sure the Singapore flag flew high and proud for the first time ever in an Olympic Arena. And last Sunday, the Law Men’s Floorball team...
IFG Roundup: Contract Bridge

IFG Roundup: Contract Bridge

It was early on a hazy (thanks Indonesia) Saturday morning that an epic battle of wits, endurance and mental fortitude between eleven faculties would begin. People clamoured about as tournament officials urged everyone to their seats. The room buzzed with excitement as competitors eagerly discussed their strategies. A countdown timer started, and the room descended...
IFG Roundup: Tchoukball

IFG Roundup: Tchoukball

Frantic feet, shuffling on polished wood. Jubilant cheers, excited shouts. The sounds of rubber striking steel. These were the sounds heard by all present that Saturday, at the IFG Tchoukball games 2016. Still having the bitter taste of defeat from last’s year Tchoukball IFG, this year’s squad, led by veteran Tchoukballer and Captain Foo Chuan...

IFG Roundup: Women’s Floorball

It is 9.30am on a weekend, and while most of us might have barely risen, our women’s floorball team is up and awaiting their first match of the day. And what a start to the day we have, as the team faces off pretty much one of the strongest players in the entire game and...
