The tournament committee, also known as the ToCo, is responsible for the organization of tournaments throughout the year. We try to organize tournaments every two months if possible. Most of these tournaments are also open for externals and our alumni. One exception is the Club championship at the end of the year, where only Beat It members can battle for the prize of best squasher. Besides ordinary tournaments, we also try to arrange special tournaments with other sport societies.
Battle of the cities is a squash tournament which is organized in a different city in The Netherlands each year. Student squash associations from all over the country come together to compete against each other. May the best city win!
BallStars is a tournament in cooperation with 5 other student sport societies from Olympos. During this tournament you can get a taste of other sports besides squash. These sports include: Badminton, Tabletennis, Basketball, Korfball, Floorball and Volleyball. So if you are an allround athlete this is the tournament for you!

We as a squash association are a very sporty society, but we are not just that! We also have loads of social events organised around the club evenings and tournaments. That’s why we have our amazing activity committee, also known as the AcCie. The main goal of the AcCie is to organize fun and unique events at least once a month. In this way members can get to know each other outside of the squash courts. Furthermore, we make it possible for alumni to still be involved with the association without being an active squasher at Beat It. Some examples of the bigger activities we organize are: the liftweekend and the membersweekend. We see that activities are well received by our members, this makes it a very rewarding business.

The PicCie is Beat It’s newest committee. It was set up because we noticed that we didn’t actually take as many pictures of all the good times in the past year as we would’ve liked, and who doesnt want a yearbook full of derpy pictures of the friends you make during a year with Beat It? Therefore, the PicCie’s task consists of taking pictures during AcCie events and Beat It tournaments, and putting together a little yearbook at the end of the year for members to buy and take home.

In 2017 a tradition was born. The ToCo challenged the AcCie for a lasertag duel. The winners could call themselves the best committee for a whole year.
Every year we are looking for new members for the ToCo, the AcCie and the PicCie. If you are interested in a position in one of the committees or have amazing ideas, do not hesitate and let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
