On the 11th January, an excentrically dressed group of students arrived at Utrecht Central. It was time for Beat It’s favourite activity of the year: the members weekend! This year the theme was ‘countries’. After much secrecy, we arrived at the beautiful city of Delft. We enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by our AcCie (thank you eternally for the delicious meal <3 Simone, Aimée, Stuart, Thom and Suvi). We finished the evening traditionally with a pub quiz. After the night was beerponged away (and we’d visited the Mac) it was time to explore the city. After we ended up in an Irish pub, we returned to Utrecht together.
Oh yes, on the 17th of November the battle started once again. Beat It’s tournament committee worked hard, with great results; the fall tournament went flawlessly.
We are proud to say the unlike the last few years a Beat It member did take part in the final: James managed to keep Marti (from Ballistic, Wageningen) on his toes, although Marti did end up winning the 1st place pancake voucher.
Thinking if participating in the next tournament? It’ll take place on the 9th of February 2019, and players of all levels are welcome! Check out Beat It’s Facebook and Instagram pages for the most up to date info.
Meet the (official) board of US Beat It 2018/19!
Last night we held our ALV, at which the Candidate Board were officially installed as the board of US Beat It. Everybody sat through another one of Thom’s long speeches as well as some fascinating insights from the other board members. Following this, the members voted to accept the new board, which gave Eefje the power to hand over the duties of running US Beat It to the gorgeous squash lovers that you see here!
We are very proud to be the board of US Beat It and we can’t wait to lead the society into another successful, squash-filled year.
Always remember: Don’t be an ass, BE A TIT!
Who’s got the best supporters ever? UTRECHT! UUUUUUUUUuuuu!!
This was proven by the awesome turnout of supporters who showed up to cheer our team on at All Inn. Although the second day didn’t end up going as smoothly as the first did matchwise, I’m sure everyone will agree with me when I say the atmosphere may have been even better.
