ISBT Utrecht

We would like to welcome you to the ISBT Utrecht 2019! It is the 12th edition of this International Student Badminton Tournament, organised in Utrecht, The Netherlands. During the ISBT, you can show off your badminton skills to everyone around! Through the ISBT lots of new people can be met and played (and partied) with. This year’s theme is Arcade: Beyond the Classics where we will go back to the start of an era and relive our childhoods. All the characters will be brought to life during the three days of playing badminton and partying.  


The ISBT Utrecht 2019 will start at night on Friday the 29th of March until Sunday the 31st of March. On Friday we will open the registration and welcome you. This night gives all the participants the opportunity to meet each other and set up your sleeping place. The games will be played on Saturday and Sunday from 9 AM until the end of the afternoon. If you cannot make it to the registration on Friday: that is no problem, they will be opened on Saturday morning as well from 8 to 8:30 AM.


The location of our awesome tournament is the Sports centre called ‘Olympos’. During the ISBT, you are very welcome to sleep at Olympos, but please note that you have to bring your own sleeping gear. On Saturday dinner will be served in the city centre of Utrecht after which we will go on to the evening programme ending with an amazing party! To get to the city centre we will use busses and bikes (for those who have one). On Sunday we serve and optional meal (for an optional additional fee of €6,-) at Olympos.


The cost to enter the Tournament is €50,-. But for those of you who are the early birds, the booking price is only €45,-! To get this discount you must book before the 1st of February 2019. If you forget to book in time or you wait till the last moment the fee will be €55,-. For information about the payment and what is included in the price, see the tab ‘payment’.


The excitement of winning, the frustration of losing: we are all familiar with it. This year we take it up a notch by reliving old memories of playing the games of our childhood. Lots of characters will join our (Mario)party: from Pacman to Yoshi or one of the space invaders. Who will you become?

Where to sleep?

After a long day of playing and a long evening of partying you can sleep in the sports centre on friday- and saturday night. Those of you who want to sleep at home: feel free to do so or join the (quiet) fun at Olympos (as long as you are in time at the sports centre again in the morning).

Stay tuned
