The International Challenge Cup (also known as the Aegon Challenge Cup after its title sponsor) is an annual figure skating competition generally held in February or March in The Hague, Netherlands. In the 1970s and 1980s, it was titled the Ennia Challenge Cup and held in November.[1]

Medals may be awarded in men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing on the senior, junior, novice, and pre-novice levels, such as "Debs". Some categories may be omitted in some years due to a lack of participants.
