Yellow Panthers is a non-profit organization that aims to provide a place where gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals can develop a sport freely. However, the association is open to anyone who wants to share the sport with us. Currently, there are sections consisting of athletics, ballroom dancing, basketball, cycling, squash, skiing, soccer, swimming, tennis, table tennis, petanque, hiking, sailing, volleyball and extracurricular activities.

Yellow Panthers was born in 1994 when a group of gays and lesbians were playing volleyball on the beach with a yellow ball that was given to a team of German gay volleyball players.

Yellow Panthers currently consists of about 640 members, we meet in a general assembly once a year to take stock and decide the future of the club. The assembly gives direction to the club board, consisting of 10 people elected by all members. This board consists of a president, a vice-president, a treasurer and a few members. The number of members of the board may be variable and tries different sport sections. Each of the sport sections of Yellow Panthers have a responsibility. To coordinate all these, sport leaders meet regularly, together with the coordinator of the sports commission, which acts as a link between the sports commission and the board.

On our website you will find information on each of our sections which inform you of how sports can approach us. You will also find interesting links related to sport for gays and lesbians, including competitions, groups, associations, federations, etc.
