E.S.R.C. The Elephants is a student rugby association, founded on the 12th of October, 1972. The members are mostly students from the University of Technology Eindhoven and the Fontys. It is a very diverse group of fat/skinny/tall/short/fast/slow rugbyers. Most of them started playing rugby during their studies. Due to the nature of the sport, there is a special kind of team spirit which you won’t find at other sports or associations.
The student-like character of The Elephants mostly comes forward when the third halve starts and on “gezellige” evenings with the association. After home-games, we enjoy some beers with the opponent and the referee and reflect on the game just played. The vibe is good, the beers are cold and the stories grand. Every last Thursday of the month, clubevening takes place. Prior to training, everybody enjoys a dinner together. After training, several beers are consumed at our favourite bar La Route. The latest news and facts about rugby and The Elephants can be read in the Maandmail (newsletter).
The Elephants also attend some recurring yearly sociale events. Among these are the New Year’s Dinner, tournaments, cantusses, championship game and as cherry on the cake: a trip to a foreign country!
