ISBT Utrecht

Welcome to ISBT Utrecht 2018! The 11th edition of this annual International Student Badminton Tournament is organised in Utrecht, the Netherlands, in March 2018. During ISBT, you can show everyone your badminton skills! You will meet a lot of great new people, with whom you can play (and party). This year’s theme is Hippies & Disco! You are taken back to a disco club with the flower power of the 60’s and 70’s in these two days of peace and music!


ISBT Utrecht 2018 will start the night of Friday the 23th until Sunday the 25th of March 2018. The games will be played on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am until the end of the afternoon. You're already welcome Friday evening at 9 pm to meet the other enthusiastic hippies, and share a drink or two. Are you only available Saturday and Sunday? No problem! Registrations will be open Saturday from 8 to 8.30 am.


ISBT Utrecht will take place at the sports centre ‘Olympos’. You are very welcome to sleep at Olympos during ISBT. Notice that you have to bring your own sleeping gear. On Saturday evening, dinner will be served in the beautiful city centre of Utrecht, followed by a disco party full of colours and delicious drinks. We have special ‘Hippy busses’ to transport every hippy to the city centre, and back to Olympos.


Our special early bird booking price, for those who decide to book before the 1st of February 2018, is € 45. Those who fear they won’t be able to make this year’s event, booking after the 1st of February will be charged an extra € 5. Last minutes (booking between 18-22 March) will pay € 55. Sunday evening participants can join for another meal for an additional small fee (€ 6,-) at Olympos. More information about the payment and what is included, see Payment.


Flowers everywhere, bright colours and loose clothing. It is all part of the 60’s and 70’s revolution: the hippy happening! This year it is all about flower power, good music and counterculture. The sports hall will look like an enormous disco with beautiful disco balls. Can you feel the disco vibe yet? Dress up like a hippy, party in the disco, and we will make sure that this year’s badminton event will be unforgettable!
