Out & About: Fastest growing sport in Denmark is junior rugby
Junior rugby continues to be Denmarkâs fastest growing sport, although touch rugby is also taking off amongst adults â" itâs the new crossfit, apparently.
Tom Vernon and his team at FC NordsjÃ¦lland were the proud hosts of a touch rugby festival for children held at The Right To Dream Park in Farum recently.
âWhat an experience that day was â" an awesome turnout,â enthused Herbie, a coach from one of the participating clubs, Gentofte Rugby Klub, which holds training for all age groups, from under -6s and up.
âThe lounge was open with hospitality and live rugby on the big screen. Everyone loved the atmosphere and had a great time. Itâs not every day rugby gets to be played in a super league football stadium.â
Not to be outdone, Hundested Rugby Klub then staged a tournament of its own a few weeks later.
Gentofte, with more than 100 members representing 20 different nationalities, might be the biggest youth club in the country, but plenty are catching up.Source: Google News Denmark | Netizen 24 Denmark
