This time Hoersholm Sports Centre has been selected to facilitate Dania Cup 2017. Refurbishments at Herlufsholm Sports Center, which facilitated Dania Cup in both 2008, 2011 and 2014, has meant that the sports centre can no longer offer the facilities that we consider necessary to conduct a large, internationally oriented agility competition.

Therefore we have decided to move to new surroundings. Our choice has fallen on Hoersholm Sports Centre, located in the beautiful North Zealand, midway between Elsinore and Copenhagen. The sports centre contains very fine facilities in the form of large, contiguous grasslands, good shower and changing facilities, indoor sports center and swimming pool and a very nice cafeteria, which can handle the provisioning of food for both participants and officials.

During Dania Cup 2017 competitions will be held six out of the seven days. Wednesday has initially been set aside as a resting day. However we have offered the facilities on Wednesday to the Danish Kennel Club national agility team for possible conduct of agility workshops – an idea we have earlier successfully tested – from which the profit will go directly to the national team competitors at the World Championship 2017 in the Czech Republic. However, at this time we do not know whether or not the agility national team will take advantage of the offer.

Finally it is our hope that we will be able to offer you another memorable agility week with merry contestants from home and abroad making friendships across borders and language barriers – a week with focus on a general respect for our dogs, our fellow contestants and our agility sport. And let us keep our fingers crossed for a whole week of Danish summer at its best.
