New to any country and not sure where to start when it comes to finding and making friends and picking up the hobbies you’re used to at home? Often, both come hand in hand in NEW lands, with many expats gathering in similar areas for networking and socialising.
There’s only one thing for it – check out the local activities and get stuck into the group that sounds most like ‘you’.
Social and Sporting Clubs
Most social clubs offer pools, gyms, restaurants, youth camps and classes. Clubs are a fantastic way of meeting other expats and will provide an instant network. Likewise, if you have experience in karate or any other martial arts ...we would like to hear from you to organise a club to affiliate with I.B.K ENGLAND this an excellent way to meet friends with similar interests. Hire of premises does not need to be expensive, try to meet current members and ask about the different facilities. Also do some comparisons of locations, membership rules and prices.
Except for a clubhouse and facilities, associations offer many of the same social benefits found at clubs, without the expensive membership fees. They are a great way to get involved in the community.
Associations/Clubs are generally linked to nationalities, although citizens of any country can join. ......as well as locals, which encourages integration
“If I could do one thing over, I would jump right in and make friends. Even if you believe that you will be here only a short while (we all did at some point!), join an association and introduce yourself to strangers.
Everyone has been in your situation and is very happy to welcome new faces and friends.”
So we would like to hear from you, if you have a background in karate,martial arts or even just start a club to learn self defence, fitness etc this could be JUST WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR
