The Elephants

The Elephants is a student rugby club founded on the 12th of October 1972. Most members study at the TU/e or Fontys. The club consists of big/skinny/small/long/fast/slow players of which most started playing rugby during their studies. There is a good relationship between all players and a close atmosphere in the whole club what is typical for rugby.

The third half and sociable nights out with the whole club are common at The Elephants. Beers and snacks are consumed after games together with the referee and opponent among the unique rugby atmosphere; battling/fighting during the game and afterwards lots of sociability and relaxation. There are also other recurring social events next to this third half: ‘clubavond’ every last Thursday of the month, New Years meal, singing nights, tournaments, cantus, ‘kampioenswedstrijd’ in which we play against old rugby players and as cherry on top the yearly rugby trip to a foreign city.
