Information for international students

EnglishAre you a foreign exchange student who loves to play handball, is interested in getting to know fellow students and exploring the Utrecht student life? Then HV Beertje is the perfect club for you! We are a student handball club that consists of about 100 enthusiastic members ranging from experienced to novice handball players.

Practices at Uithof
Our practices take place every Tuesday night (from 21:00 – 23:30) and Friday night (from 18:30 – 20:00) at Studentensportcentrum Olympos, at the Uithof in Utrecht. The adress is Uppsalalaan 3, Utrecht.

Besides weekly practices and matches we organize a variety of activities that will give you the opportunity to get to know your teammates outside of the field. Such as our monthly get together for drinks in the inner city as well as a barbeque, Sinterklaas festivities and a Christmas dinner. Plenty of opportunities for you to get involved! Furthermore we host an annual tournament, the Beertje-Battle, in which teams from all other Dutch university cities take part! In return we also join in their tournaments, kicking ass on the field as well as on the dance floor during the party night!

Having a good time with your teammates is foremost important, but we also expect our members to be motivated and engaged in order to get the most out of the practices. We’ll have the possibility to show our talents during matches & tournaments, including the National Student Championship (GNSK).

Experience is not required
We are always looking for new motivated members, whether you have never touched a handball, have been playing all your life, or are just interested in becoming a volunteer within our organization, everyone is welcome!
