Denmark Surf Life Saving Club
Part of the Denmark Community since 1958
There are many aspects to the club, including patrolling, education programs for our members, a fantastic family atmosphere, competition and a strong development program for our junior members.
Denmark Surf Life Saving Club was formed in November 1958 after a tragic double drowning at Ocean Beach. In the days after the tragedy a town meeting was called and the Denmark Surf Life Saving Club was formed. A small group of young men from the town received training from visiting lifesavers from the City of Perth club, with the first patrol at Ocean Beach commencing on the 14th December 1958. In 2008, the Denmark Club celebrated their 50th anniversary with a weekend of activities to which a fair number of those who were involved in the formative years managed to attend.
The Club now has now grown to have one of the best located clubrooms on the WA coast, much to the envy of many visiting members from other clubs. Our membership totals nearly 300, with around 130 juniors participating in our nipper program. We have four patrol teams rostered on weekends from the first weekend in December until the last weekend in March.
Surf Life Saving to return to Denmark for 2020 championships
Following a hugely successful carnival which saw nearly 1,000 competitors from across WA converge on Ocean Beach, Denmark over the 2019 Australia Day long weekend, Surf Life Saving WA have announced that they will return to Denmark as the site of their 2020 country and masters championships next February.
Surf Life Saving WA (SLSWA) President Craig Smith-Gander said the success of the 2019 Country Carnival, the largest held in recent years, demonstrated the capacity of the club and town to host a sporting event of this scale, as well as the desire of the members to travel to a regional location like Denmark for events.
