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!

For this game, the first team of the Studs drove with a van and two cars to Eindhoven.  The aim was to start the new season with a good first game, so the hopes were up and a team of 14 players was ready for battle.
