Looking for Sports Buddies?

Join the Olympos Sports Buddy Community for free!

You can participate in clinics, join drinks and monthly gatherings!


For international students of Utrecht University (UU) and HU University of Applies Sciences (Dutchies also welcome)!



Doing sports is not only a means to get fit. It’s also one of the best ways to make friends and to improve mental health. The sports culture in the Netherlands is really big, and many students join Olympos or a student sports club. But for internationals, it can be a bit harder to find sports buddies. That’s where we come in!



We are Olympos Sportbuddies, a sports community. Do you want to play tennis, volleyball or basketball? Do you like strength training in the gym? Do you want to go running outside, but preferably not on your own? Or participate in group lessons like yoga or Zumba? We’re here to tell you everything you need to know about your favorite sports. If you want, we'll help you find someone with whom you can team up! We also offer clinics regularly, where you can try out new sports, and we have drinks once a month.



Yeah, sounds great, doesn’t it? And joining the Sports Buddues Community is free! This means you don't even need to become a member of Olympos. However, we recommend buying the OlymPas (Olympos’ all-in sports membership card), because OlymPas gives you access to a large variety of sports, for an incredibly low (student) price compared to other sport clubs in Utrecht. 

If you sign up for the sports buddies community (click here to do so), you will be informed of all activities. You can then see what you want to participate in (no obligations) and get in touch informally with other students who would like to do the same sports as you. 



There will be monthly clinics, drinks and gatherings throughout the year! You can find more information about the dates of the clinics on the right side of this page.

Try new sports and meet other buddies: join our free clinics Tennis or (Kick)Boxing on Sunday 26 March. It does not matter whether you are a beginner or already more experienced in the sport in question: the trainer will have the clinic 'tailor-made' and you will meet other students who are likely to enjoy doing this sport more often. Click here for more info about the clinics and to register.
