The Slapping Studs

Welcome to the website of the oldest student ice hockey team of the Netherlands. Ever since 1982 we have been affiliated with the University of Twente, where the Studs were founded by a group of students looking for some action.

Our home rink is the IJsbaan Twente in Enschede. Currently, we participate in two different leagues: the Student League and the 5th division. We have over 40 enthusiastic players: anything from rookies to experienced players, men, women and several international students. You can browse around this website if you want to know more about the Slapping Studs or contact us if you want to join us in playing the coolest game on earth!

The Game in Hoorn on 1st December

So became December, and the Studs began their journey to the other side of the Netherlands, to give a hard time to the Cougars. Which would be the tougher species, the fabulous horses of Enschede or the sharp-toothed cats of Hoorn?
