WHO WE ARE
We are a student rugby club in The Hague dedicated to creating a team with a welcoming atmosphere for all student regardless of rugby experience. We strive to be as welcoming as possible to all students while still retaining a competitive edge in the Dutch rugby scene.
Our goal is to create a team where friendships are made, championships are won, and good times are had. We always aim to be competitive wherever we go but above all that we sell ourselves as a social club where member enjoyment is placed above all else.
Wondering how we turned a rag-tag bunch of misfits into an all-conquering band of brothers? Our road to glory started with a few mates sitting around a beer crate on a Kingsday afternoon but ended with a group of Hornets siting around a trophy on an afternoon like kings. This is that story.
Come join us!
Are you looking to find a bunch of guys and girls always up for a laugh and a drink? Keen to get get involved in a competitive but fun sports scene? Student rugby might be for you, and more specifically, The Hague Hornets might be for you. Join us for a training session or a social and let us show you why joining us is the best decision many of our members have ever made!
Costs for students are €175,00 p/year after six introductory weeks.
This year we are fielding three teams. The Hague Hornets 1, our student team will look to continue the winning form they started last year in the Fourth Division when they take on the best the Third Division has to offer. Likewise the seconds team, a combination with WRC Te Werve, will look to make their mark in the Fourth Division and follow in the footsteps of the firsts. Our female contingent, The Bees, have formed a combination team with The Hookers to show the Third Division their year in training has made them a premier rugby force.
TRaining and socials
We train every Tuesday and Thursday night from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM. After every training you’re guaranteed to find a few of the old boys, first team players and students chilling in the clubhouse having a few beers, and on Tuesday and Thursday a hearty meal is provided at a very low cost to ensure our players maintain proper nutrition.
Every second Friday we also host a social, a gathering of the whole club, for a night of drinking, games and banter that always produces a few stories worth telling and a few worth keeping quiet.
The Hague Hornets work in close collaboration with the Hague Rugby Club WRC Te Werve. For more information send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
