BTUTK also known as the Boes Timp University of Twente Championships is a tournament for current and former DIOKkers as well as people interested in the sport who are registered at the UT. You can compare the tournament with an association championship. It is a small but nice tournament perfect for those who want to get to know badminton a bit better. You can participate in all types of categories, such as playing singles, doubles (mixed) against opponents of the same level. Due to the fact that this tournament is all about fun and getting to know the sport, losing doesn’t mean that you would be eliminated. 

BTUTK 2023!

BTUTK is back! The university badminton championships will take place on Saturday 1st. The theme for this year’s BTUTK is nostalgia. You can register for the tournament Here! Note that both you and your partner(s) need to register. We will contest the championship using a Swiss-ladder system. This means that the more matches played, the closer in level your opponents will be. Next to that, there are no knock-outs in this system, so you can keep playing even if you lose!
Besides the badminton we will also organize a pubquiz before the award ceremony. The pubquiz will be all about nostalgia, obviously. We hope to resurface some some happy memories. Afterwards, we can go wild at the VB.

This year there will only be three levels.

Leveled play

  • Expert ( sixth division and above; feather shuttles)
  • Intermediate (seventh- and eighth division; nylon shuttles)
  • Beginner (ninth division and below; nylon shuttles)

Everyone is guaranteed to play multiple matches!


This years costs are as follows: none
