THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION (PE) and Athletics Department planned to change the venue of four sports for the upcoming university intramurals.
Sports that will have new venues inside the Silliman University (SU) campus are men’s volleyball and badminton in men and women’s categories.
Ramir Tero, a staff member of the PE and Athletics Department, said that some basketball games may also be played in another location other than SU gym and Alaska court.
Meanwhile, Tero said that only two events will be played outside the campus, namely track and field and Ultimate Frisbee.
For volleyball, both the games for men and women will be held in the Molave, Narra, and Ipil (Monapil) court.
Men’s volleyball games will be transferred from the College of Business Administration (CBA) grounds to Monapil court because Tero said that the CBA grounds is rough.
However, some volleyball games will be played in the gymnasium.
Meanwhile, badminton games will be played inside the gym unlike last year when it was held in the ERCO Sports Center because it is already closed.
Basketball games will still be played inside the SU gym and Alaska court, which is under reconstruction.
“The Buildings and Grounds assured us that they can finish fixing Alaska court within this week,” he said.
Tero added that if Alaska court will not be renovated within this week, they are planning to use the SU High School (SUHS) court but for only a few games, because of the classes in SUHS that will be ongoing during the week.
Like track and field, Tero said that Ultimate Frisbee games will be held at the Perdices Coliseum.
However, as of Nov. 23, Tero said that the department is still trying to contact the administration of the coliseum for confirmation.
For equipment that will be used during the Intramurals, Tero said that additional equipment has already arrived and has been prepared.
“Naa nay mga bag-ong gi-request nga [balls, shuttlecocks, bats, and gloves] for the Intrams,” said Tero.
The Intramurals games will start on Dec. 1 and end on Dec. 5.~
