Originally established over 30 years ago with a limited number of clubs, the Ithaca College Sport Club program has undergone a significant expansion since that time and currently consists of 38 clubs in the categories of competitive, instructional, performance and recreational sports.
Placed under the guidance of the Office of Recreational Sports in fall 2001, the sport club program is currently based out of the Ithaca College Fitness Center and continues to expand at a rapid rate as clubs are added as interest for them increases.
Voluntarily organized by students, sport clubs exist for the purpose of furthering a common interest in a physical activity through competition, instruction, participation, or performance. Students elect their own officers, draft their own constitution, request facility space, get approval for and make travel arrangements, schedule contests with other teams, develop contracts with officials and artists, fund raise and manage their budget.
About Ping Pong
Initially geared towards providing stress relief from both work and school when it was first established in 2004, the Ithaca College Ping Pong Leisure Club has since developed into a semi-competitive organization that now takes part in competitive tournaments in the Northeast and Canada. Originally formed by two students and their residential assistant, Ithaca Ping Pong is currently a member of the National Collegiate Table Tennis Association and is one of 12 teams playing in the Upstate New York Division. Established in 1992, the NCTTA is the primary governing body for collegiate table tennis, promoting the sport in the United States and Canada, and works closely with the USA Table Tennis Association, the sports national governing body.
The Ithaca College Ping Pong Leisure Club currently consists of nine individuals and is open to all members of the Ithaca College community that are interested in the sport of ping pong. The club usually competes in two major tournaments each year, with one in each semester, and is active from September through May.
