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, or 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.
After 3 years, BTUTK is back! On June 18th and 19th we will once more contest the university badminton championships. The theme for this year’s BTUTK is Disney’s Beauty and Tarzan and the registration is open now (or alternatively through here if you do not have a badminton federation account)! 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!
Besides the badminton we also organize a BBQ and pubquiz on Saturday. The pubquiz will logically be Disney themed, so make sure to study hard beforehand 😉 After this we will party until the night ends.
There are four levels of play in the BTUTK, which are listed below
- Level A (sixth division and above; feather shuttles)
- Level B (seventh- and eighth division; nylon shuttles)
- Level C (ninth division; nylon shuttles)
- Level D (recreational & beginners; nylon shuttles)
Everyone will play multiple matches and we would be using the Swiss-ladder system.
This years costs are as follows:
|Every other event||€6,50|
