February 20, 2020 – February 23, 2020 all-day
De Uithof
Ice Skating Challenge and Figure Skating @ De Uithof

From 20 to 23 February 2020 The Uithof in The Hague will be the venue for the Challenge Cup and the National Championship Figure Skating. The Challenge Cup is a competition in which young, up-and-coming talents in the age of 10 to seniors get the chance to measure themselves on a global level with their fellow athletes.

In addition, the competition serves as preparation and final qualification for the international top skaters at the World Championships. National titles are also at stake for the Dutch participants. The best Dutch figure skater in every category becomes Dutch Champion.

The Challenge Cup is and remains a highly appreciated international figure skating competition. The Challenge Cup fits well with the ambition to get Dutch figure skating at the Olympic level and at the same time bring the sport to the attention of a large Dutch and international audience.
