We are a student rugby club in The Hague dedicated to creating a team with a welcoming atmosphere for all students regardless of rugby experience. We strive to be as welcoming as possible 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 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!

Membership costs for students is €175,00 p/year after six free introductory weeks.


This year we are fielding two teams. The Hague Hornets 1, forming a combination team with WRC Te Werve, have made the step up from last year and will take to the field this season in the Second Division looking for new scalps to claim and names to add to their wall. After the long layoff from rugby the boys are sure to come out all cylinders firing and raring make up for missed glory.

Our female contingent, The Bees, will be continuing the very successful combination team formed with The Hookers that saw them place second overall last season before the season was called off to once again show the Third Division their first year in the competition has cemented their position as a premier women’s rugby force.

TRaining and socials

We train every Tuesday and Thursday night from 20:00 to 22:00. 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. These will be organised again as soon as possible while bearing in mind and respecting all the Corona restrictions imposed on us by the Dutch government.



The Hague Hornets work in close collaboration with the Hague Rugby Club WRC Te Werve. For more information send an email to thehaguehornets@gmail.com
