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 second game of the 2017-2018 season of Team 2 was at our home rink against GIJS Black Spirit Groningen.While we had some difficulties recruiting players for the game we still were able to field 2 lines and a goalie. Our captain, Laura Kester #66 supported us morally and emotionally as coach despite her injuries. Her coaching and support had a huge positive impact on the teams spirit. Last year we managed to lose with a respectable 10 to 3 score; this year we were not so lucky.

The first game of the 2017-2018 season of Team 2 was at the home rink of The IJCU Dragons in Utrecht. After a long period of summer without ice hockey Team 2 was very eager and excited to play again. For some members this would be their first game ever! Last year Team 2 - IJCU Dragons ended in a 3 - 19 score. This year, with our old team captain Peter van Arkel by our side as coach and bench gate opener, we were determined to do better.
