Der Club an der Alster

Welcome to the Club

1919 – a bunch of sailors from the Alsterpiraten, the youth group of the north German Regatta Club, decided to play field hockey during the winter. In order to do so they founded „Der Club an der Alster“ on 28th of november 1919. The name was chosen – it is said in the founding documents – „because as a sailor you had it with the Alster“.
The founders' intention was to play hockey, but already 1927 there was a tennis division found. From that day on the Club is in a consistent advancement, ready to walk new paths and expand it’s range of sports within the financialy achievable. Our goal is to achieve the optimum for every member, in high-performance and mass sports as well as in all the other fields we offer, always enduring our club tradition. With this in mind during the last 90 years, the club established itself in the heart of Hamburg.
