The people behind the
Houten Games

The Houten Games only exist because of the help of the awesome people who are part of the organization or board; the volunteers, employees, or students, and thanks to our partners and sponsors.

About the Houten Games

The Houten Games are a non-profit organisation with the goals:

  • Make new relations in the neighborhood
  • Give local associations and companies the chance to shine
  • A fun and exciting event to participate in and look at

History

The Houten Games are a new initiative. The foundation was established in 2020. It began with an idea of Klaas Jongsma and developed into an organizational structure with partners, sponsors, students, and volunteers at the beginning of 2021.

The first event year will be 2021 with an adjusted Covid-19 proof edition and the intention is that the big yearly event will take place for the first time in July 2022.

Initiator

Klaas Jongsma

When Klaas moved to Houten, he fancied organizing something fun where people in Houten could meet each other. A tournament concept from secondary school was the inspiration that formed the idea of the Houten Games.
