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!

Sunday evening. The atmosphere was chilly in the changing room. As player prepared for the game, there was one thing on their minds that they realized: This was about to be their last game of the season in the 5th division. Laces were thightened, protective gear applied, helmets put on. As the room slowly showed the black and yellow colors, a voice started filling the room. “Okay Studs listen up!” The captain started her introduction speech.

Saterday 10 December 2017

This day started off like every other. Early in the morning getting breakfast. Thinking about what lies ahead in the day. It would be a nice day because we have a ice hockey game. We needed to play an away game against Ice Hawks. Last years champion against us :"last years second place".

What I didn't know was what lies ahead. A winter storm was comming to the netherlands. The KNMI gave out a Code red warning. What means don't go on the road if you don't have to.
