One For the Team: Scenes at MDX Sports Training 

The glossy gymnasium floor mirrored the overhead fluorescent lights as the large turnout of students huddled together, heads bent in a picturesque display of camaraderie. In unison, they erupted, “Three, two, one, Middlesex!” A scene like this is not uncommon to those who frequent Middlesex sports training sessions held almost every evening.

RedBeat had the pleasure of talking to a few students who, unsurprisingly, expressed a similar sentiment. The term “family” was often used to describe the sense of community they had gained through Middlesex sports clubs.

Apart from carrying their family’s legacies, students also reasoned their decision to play sports with their competitive drive, desire for entertainment and fun, as well as just enjoying the company of their newfound peers.
