Familien-Sportbund Minden are based in Minden in the North Rhine- Westphalia region of Germany. Familien-Sportbund (FSB) means Family Sport Federation in English.
On the 2.5 hectare association grounds, members find an ideal place to strip off the daily stress of everyday life and to spend a relaxing or a sporting evening, depending on the mood.
FSB Minden has been open since 1957 when the club was founded by 11 ladies and gentlemen, from other clubs near Bielefeld and Hanover. At the beginning of 1958 the association belonged to a forest piece of 18500 square meters. In the years 1964 and 1967, the sports and recreation ground was extended to the current size of 25000 sqm.
The members worked hard to expand the club and built a log house, a separate toilet building, a dressing room, a lodge and electricity, water and telephone connections installed and ongoing the people from the area collectively maintain the whole nature reserve together. In 2008/2009 this was then converted into a new natural swimming pool.
The site is based within the beautiful Wesergebirge (Wesser Hills), there is camping on site with electricity hook ups and regular communal BBQs, guests are welcome.
They have facilities for cycling, swimming, petanque, tennis, table tennis, darts and volleyball. The club has its own sports calendar and areas that guests can partake in sporting activities too and is part of the regional Familien-Sport-Gemeinschaft NW e.V. which has 28 clubs in the area.
Some quotes from the club website on nudity and FKK:
“Once you have swum naked and then sit in the sun to dry without the bikini or the swimming trunks jamming, you will understand why we are naked.There is nothing more beautiful than to get up in the morning and feel the sun on the skin”
“The sport of the naturists is called Ringtennis and this is carried out naked, if one wants, because one can, but does not have. In sports such as volleyball, tennis, etc., one should usually wear protective clothing. The German sports badge is taken clothed with the exception of the swimming disciplines”
