ISBT Utrecht 2015

Welcome, dear angels and devils, to the ISBT Utrecht 2015! The 8th edition of this annual International Student Badminton Tournament in Utrecht will be held in March 2015. During the ISBT, you can play badminton for two days whilst having a lot of fun meeting many different people. This year's theme will be: 'Heaven or Hell, which side are you on?', so prepare for epic badminton matches between good and evil and an even more epic party where your innocent or devilish side can be revealed!


The ISBT Utrecht 2015 will take place from Friday evening the 20th until Sunday the 22nd of March 2015. The games will be played on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00h to approximately 18:00h. You're welcome from Friday evening 21:00h to meet the other participants, have a drink in the sports cafe and enjoy a heavenly night in the sports hall already. For those who want to come on Saturday, registrations will be open from 08:00 to 08:30h.


Badminton will be played at the sports centre Olympos in Utrecht where you can also stay to sleep if you bring your own sleeping gear. On Saturday evening dinner will be served in the city centre of Utrecht, followed by a great Heaven or Hell party. We have special busses to transport all innocent and devilish competitors to and from the city centre. It is also possible to have a final delicious dinner to conclude the weekend at Olympos on Sunday evening for an additional €6-7.

Tournament details

The matches will be played in four different categories: A = top regional to national standard, B = regional to top club standard, C = club standard, D = recreational standard. In the A-, B- and C-categories feather shuttles will be used; nylon shuttles will be used in the D-category. You are requested to choose two of your favourite disciplines (MS-LS-MD-LD-MX) - the committee will make the couples. We will use the Swiss ladder system, so there is no risk to get eliminated early in the tournament.
