What we're about

We’re a bunch of people who live in or close to the coast town of Scheveningen and love to meet new people, making friends, being active and having lots of fun. We’re planning to organize regular sport and healthy life style events, preferably sustainable and at low cost (this group runs on a voluntary basis, we don't make any profit). Everyone is welcome as long as you treat each other with respect.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Unfortunately it happens frequently that people cancel their attendancy at the very last minute or just don’t show up.

In case you were not able to join due to unforeseen circumstances, please send a private message to the organizer. Last minute cancellations and no shows will be registered (after the 3rd time you cannot join any event for 6 months).

Basketball (outdoor)

bakkersstraat

Basketball is a great and fun way to get fit and stay in shape. Even President Barack Obama plays the game on a daily basis as part of his fitness regimen. Let’s play a game of street basketball at the outdoor basketball court at the Bakkersstraat in city center. It's possible that the court is occupied, in that case we have to wait a bit or move to another one. All level players are welcome; from beginners to profs (I’m a beginner). On YouTube you can find some video’s about basic game rules, for example this one: https://youtu.be/K9NCz43Ryw4 Please bring both a white and a dark colored shirt to form teams. I will bring a ball. Please cancel your rsvp in advance if you're not planning to join! This event is limited to 20 persons (4 teams of 5). In case of bad weather this event will be rescheduled.

Blokarting!

Strandpaviljoen De Staat

€20.00

**Please note: The date for this event is fictional, no date is confirmed yet** Have a blast sailing on land! A blow kart is a land yacht for the beach. It's easy to learn and suitable for everyone; you'll be speeding down the beach in no time. You operate the sail by using your hands. A blokart instructor will explain us in about 15 minutes how to operate safely. Safety is very important, therefor everyone will be wearing a helmet. After the instructions we have 1 hour of play time, everyone has its own blokart. We can also do a little competition. The costs will be 20 euros per person (this is cheap; regular price is 30 euros!). A Tikkie-link for the deposit will follow soon. Blokarting is possible from wind speed 3 or 4 (beaufort), but it will be more fun with at least wind speed 5. And we need low water ('eb' in Dutch). Because the weather forecast is difficult to predict, i will need to notice you on a short term (24-48 hrs). I will keep an eye on the forecasts (https://www.windguru.cz/572 and https://scheveningen.com/nl/getijden-eb-vloed.php). Anyway, it will be either a Saturday or Sunday. This event is limited to 10 persons and the location might change, depending on availability. You can already sign up and i will let you know as soon as a date is planned. Please check your messages regularly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aw5JP-JkuEU&t=14s **Please note: The date for this event is fictional, no date is confirmed yet**
