Spend a weekend in lovely Amsterdam, playing volleybal and partying with international from across Europe!
Every year, SVU organises the International Tournament where you can compete against and show your volleyball skills to students from all different countries. This year the International Tournament starts Friday the 16th of November and lasts until Sunday the 18th of November 2018. From all over Europe, 300 students come to Amsterdam for a weekend with plenty of fun. We start with a party in the sport centre on Friday night where you can meet the other participants. When the party is over, you only have to take a few steps to your bed, because we all sleep in the sports hall. Saturday morning the organisation wakes you up in their own way and all the stuff is removed so that the tournament can start. 40 teams compete against each other in 3 different pools (Men, Ladies, Mix) and 2 different levels (Low, High). When you don’t have a match yourself, you can go to the canteen where the organization has set out sandwiches, fruit and drinks for some energy. But you can also watch other matches or buy your own IT-sweater! Around 6 pm the whistle sounds and the sports hall turns into a restaurant where we all have dinner. After that we all prepare for the highlight of the weekend: the costume party, which is held on a secret location. On Sunday the last competition matches are played and we all watch the finals to see who will be the winners of the 28th edition of the International Tournament.
