All types of clubs
In Esbjerg Municipality almost 1000 associations are registered within categories that vary from sports to hobbies and crafts and different types of networks. Many of the clubs are established as associations, which receive funding because they support general enlightenment. These clubs are cheaper to join than the entirely commercial clubs primarily because they often function as non-profit organizations run by volunteers.
You will find the Danes in the clubs
There is a strong association culture in Denmark, where club life is just as much about socializing as it is about indulging in your spare time interests. It is relatively easy to establish your own club and therefore there is a wide selection of clubs available to join.
The Danes make new friends and socialize in the clubs, and very often they make friends for life through their childhood spare time activity. Most clubs offer additional activities where members meet up for socializing events such as dining together, travelling or meeting up for seasonal activities like summer parties or events at Easter or Christmas.
You will find clubs where socializing is the main purpose, and you will find clubs where training for a specific sport or learning a specific art craft is the main purpose. However, most clubs invite you to do both, and it is a good opportunity to meet like-minded people.
