Badminton Club

This club is a student organization dedicated to promoting the sport of badminton, developing members' skills, and providing a competitive and fun playing environment. We welcome students, faculty, and staff players of all skill levels. The goal of the club is to bring together all badminton players at UT Southwestern Medical Center by offering a healthy environment for competitive badminton and to clear the misconception of badminton as a typical "American backyard game." Our club meets 4–8 p.m. Saturdays at the Student Center.

Members will be encouraged to participate in local rides (e.g. Tour de Dallas). The club promotes biking as a means to exercise, a way to stay active, and as a mode of transportation.

Dartos Soccer Club

Dartos is the UT Southwestern men’s soccer team. In the fall and spring, we play in the 3rd division of the North Texas Premier Soccer Association. Commitment is limited to weekly games on Sunday mornings and afternoons. In the offseason we play indoor (sometimes). The team comprises fun-loving and competitive students. Tryouts are hosted in the first week of classes.

Taekwondo, which can be translated to the “way of foot and fist,” is widely considered to be the most popular martial art in the world, spanning more than 100 countries and 30 million practitioners. At UT Southwestern, classes are held every week in the Bryan Williams, M.D. Student Center’s multipurpose room, and beginners are more than encouraged to join! No prior martial arts experience needed. Not only will you get a good workout, but also it’s a great way to meet new people! Safety will always take priority, and you are always welcome to just come and watch.

Ultimate Frisbee™ Organization (UFO)

Established in 2011 to promote the development and awareness of Ultimate Frisbee as a sport. We were recent champions of the SMU Intramural league in 2015 and hope to keep the winning tradition alive. We encourage fair game, good sportsmanship, and spirit of the game!
