What is a club in Denmark? 

A great way to meet local Danes is through clubs and associations, as they play an essential role in Danish society. They can be formed around not only sports, but also hobbies such as reading, knitting, historical fencing, and console gaming.

Clubs and associations are almost always 100% volunteer-based, created by individuals who truly enjoy the activity they do. This means they're cheap to join, and vast in numbers (more than 10.000 active clubs and associations nationwide).
