Welcome to Brussels International Badminton Club!

With members from almost 20 countries, we are probably the most international badminton club in the Flemish league. We have five teams in the mixed and level league competitions and regularly send large delegations to play in tournaments. On top of that, we have many keen casual players and an active and varied social life.

Club Tournament in May: We need volunteers to help organise the tournament with us in early May. Talk to Gunnar if you’re interested. Also, this will likely be our final Tournament for the time being. New rules come into effect in 2020 which mean we need a member of the club to become an umpire to enable us to host a tournament in the future. If you would like to take part in the tournament as a competition player you will first need to be registered as one. Talk to anyone on the Committee about this.

Club Shirts: It has been decided that until we have 40 club shirts to order, the order will not be placed. (At least not before August). We are at 22 shirts so far. So get your name on Simon Jensen’s list if you would like a club shirt or two or three. They are quality t-shirts made by ‘Victor’ and will have our logo and you can have your name on the back, no additional cost. I have in my head that 1 shirt = approximately 30 euros. In any case talk to Simon if you are interested in buying some.

Social Events: The Interclub season is drawing to a close, so the Committee suggests we have a Barbecue open to all members and their partners and families, on a Sunday at the hall Cafeteria when the weather starts to get better again… Details of when exactly will follow soon.

Membership Secretary: The club is currently looking for a member to take on the role of Membership Secretary. This voluntary job involves welcoming new members, getting them to pay subscriptions and inputting their details in our player database online. Anyone interested?

Upcoming Hall Closures: 

  • 21st April
  • 1st May
  • 30th May
  • 9th June

During the summer, the hall is closed from 14th July to 15th August inclusive.

In other news, well done to Ben and Henry for getting to B1 ranking. Don’t hesitate to buy them drinks in the cafeteria.

Latest Information

We hope that the return to the badminton courts has been enjoyable for you and that the summer excesses have been forgotten.

Video

You may have seen that we have a super new video on our web page, which stars some of our younger and less young members. It's a great advertisment for the club so go have a look at it if you haven't seen it already.

Training

Training with Volker for intermediate players will start on Wednesday 10th October and will continue until Christmas. If you are interested, come down on Wednesday or send an email to the Secretary who will inform Volker.

Van Wel

Thierry Van Wel will be down in the hall on Wednesday night from 20h selling a full range of racquets, t-shirts and shoes. If you need top quality badminton gear, don't miss out on this opportunity.

Hall closure

Due to the Commune elections, the hall will be closed from Thursday 11th October until Sunday 14th October included, so there is no badminton on Thursday nor on Sunday. Apologies.

Lights

As you will be aware, the quality of the lighting in the hall has deteriorated over the past number of years. The Commune has now organised for the lights to be replaced with LED lighting. This work will take place over the month of October and may mean that the showers and toilets are not always available during this time. Availability of the hall for play should not be compromised during this period.
