Sports in ITB
The first sporting club was founded in ITB in 1999. Since then, ITB has tried to facilitate all sporting preferences. In ITB we believe that college should be a life defining experience in which you try new things, take up new hobbies and meet new people. Taking part is sport is a great way to achieve this.
Sport is not just about competing; it is about being involved and experiencing all the highs and lows that sport can bring. In ITB we try to make sure people to reach their full potential.
Our aim is to facilitate any student who wishes to partake in a sporting activity while they are studying in ITB.
Yours in Sport
