An International LGBT Badminton during Easter kicks off a season full of sports tournaments within the Amsterdam LGBTQI community. Often these tournaments are organized around a public holiday. That gives participants an extra day off to travel, recuperate from the sports activities or to party an extra day. Because one of the fun things is that these tournaments are not only about competing with fellow LGBTQI sporters, but also to socialize and have fun together. This badminton tournament takes place from Friday the 30th of March till Sunday the 1st of April.
