Are you wondering how to keep your little ones busy on the weekends? Looking to find a new eclectic community in Copenhagen? Have you heard about Gentofte Rugby Klub?
Back in early 2016, a small group of international rugby families met over a cup of tea and GRK was formed. Looking to bring together children from the local and international community, to build a rugby community in the northern part of Copenhagen. Bringing a wealth of experience from all corners of the globe, their aim was to build the best rugby club possible.
Well we think they did! GRK is now the largest youth rugby club in Denmark and continues to grow week on week. The youngest players are age 4 through to 17, plus they have parents playing a regular touch game during training. With regular success at the Danish Rugby Union Tournaments the club is going from strength to the strength.
We can tell you how GRK train every Saturday morning all year round, with a short break over the Summer and the Christmas holidays. GRK could divulge their secrets on how the coaches are developing the players fitness, strength, ball skills, plus the values of the club; Passion, Teamwork, Respect, Discipline and Fairplay! BUT what GRK is most proud of is it’s community feel. On a Saturday morning (and a Wednesday evening) families from all over Copenhagen (with roots from all over the world), meet, chat, network and watch their young players develop.
The parent community have regular social catch ups at their sponsors The Globe Irish Pub in Norreport, stories are swapped, advice is given, games are played and all are welcome.
If you are looking for a community orientated, sporting environment then feel free to get in contact on firstname.lastname@example.org or just turn up on a Saturday morning!!
