ISBT Utrecht 2017

Welcome to the ISBT Utrecht 2017! The 10th edition of this annual International Student Badminton Tournament in Utrecht will be held in March 2017. During the ISBT, you can play badminton for two days whilst having a lot of fun meeting many different people. In this year’s theme, Glitter Glamour and the Golden Globes, you have a chance to play against other famous celebrities in all their glitter and glamour.


The ISBT Utrecht 2017 will start the night of Friday the 24th until Sunday the 25th of March 2017. 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 celebrities to share a drink or two. 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 center Olympos in Utrecht where you can also stay to sleep bring your own sleeping gear. On Saturday evening, dinner will be served in the city center of Utrecht, followed by a glamorous party full of famous movie stars. We have special ‘limousines’ to transport all actors, actresses and directors to and from the city center. Sunday evening participants can join for another meal for an additional small fee at Olympos.

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 favorite 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.
