About Heep

M.S.B.C. HEEP is the one and only student badminton association of Maastricht! Next to badminton, we offer a range of fun activities throughout the year. Also, members often meet up for drinks and going out.

Location: UM SPORTS Randwyck, P. Debyeplein 15, 6229 HA Maastricht

 

Training hours:

 

Tuesday 19:45h-21:15h

 

Thursday 21:00h-23:00h

 

 

HEEP-hour

Every Tuesday, Thursday, HEEP has its own so called HEEP-hours at the UM SPORTS centre. On Thursdays, members team up against each other for small competitions (free play). On Tuesday, HEEP offers an advanced training.

Everyone plays together during these HEEP-hours, so you do not need a certain skill in badminton to have a good time!

 

 

Training

Next to the free play on Thursday for all skill levels, HEEP offers something extra for more skilled players. HEEP-members can, exclusively, join an advanced training! This training will focus on different techniques and movements. Please be on time, because Jack will make groups at the beginning of the training!

Of course, novice skilled players and people new to badminton, can participate in training sessions as well. . 

During UM SPORTS hours trainers will be present to assist you, and during HEEP-hours there will be members who are more than happy to help you!

 

Regional competition

During academic year 2018-2019 HEEP does not play national competition. However, every now and then there is a regional tournament in which you can participate. Teams can be made during the HEEP-hours. Subscription fees are partly sponsored by HEEP.

 

Tournament: ISBT

HEEP organises an ISBT annually. ISBT stands for International Student Badminton Tournament. This is usually a very fun experience, since both Dutch and foreign students play badminton with each other, party for a whole weekend, and have a sleep-over in the sports hall. What more can you wish for?!

Information regarding the ISBT of 2018-2019 will be posted here.

Next to our own ISBT we also visit ISBT's from other clubs. We have been to Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Berlin, Utrecht, Tilburg, Enschede, Tonsberg (Norway), Paris and Prague, so it is internationally orientated!

 

Activities

HEEP organises badminton activities for their members such as tournaments, as well as other external activities. In the past these have included but not limited to pool/snooker, bowling, dinner together, board-games and drinking games, and much more.  Of course, members are more than welcome to propose ideas for future events!
