Do Rec/House/Beer/"Korpen" leagues exist at all in Sweden?
Like the title says, do we have anything at all like the Rec/House leagues they have in North America where people of all levels of talent can play just for the sake of having fun?

I know we have Korpen for football, floorball etc, but they don't seem to have any hockey, at least not here in Gothenburg.

I know both Division 3 and 4 are basically beer leagues, but the talent level of those is still far too high for people like me who haven't played for 10+ years and never were all that good to begin with.

Surely a great hockey nation like ours has to have a strictly recreational league somewhere?

There must be many of them, even our little town has a beer league and we didn't even have a div. 4 team for a couple of years.

Yeah I've heard of beer leauges. It's probably some at least here and there. Strange that you dont have any in Gothenburg. Google around...

We don't have any of that where I live. Div.2 is the lowest competition around here.

Well, doesn't Korpen at least have "rinkbandy"? It's not quite hockey but maybe it's better then nothing?

Gotta say I'm quite surprised, I thought those leagues were at least pretty close to as common as football recreational leagues.

"Our" league had a no hits and no slapshots policy, other than that it was just like any hockey league. Quality of players ranged from div 1 to people who could barely skate, some games were quite entertaining. :laugh:
