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!
Due to the advice given by the RIVM and the NOC-NSF regarding the Corona virus, the Enschede ice rink has decided to close on the 13th of March and will not re-open until the 2020-2021 season. All trainings, games and tournaments for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season will therefore be cancelled.
