The Swedish Betta Club started between a small group of betta lovers in Sweden in April 2014. It was founded by Victoria Stark, Alexandra Karlsson, Jim Denley, and Hanna Selfelt, who found each other largely due to a post in the Bettas4all forum inquiring after other Swedish betta breeders. We are only a new club, but we have big ambitions!
It is the goal of the SBC to:
Due to our members being from other Scandinavian countries in addition to Sweden, the main language of our club is English, however most of our members are Swedish and the non-Swedes among us can communicate in Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian tolerably well. If our members are more comfortable writing and speaking in Swedish, it is certainly not discouraged!
We are a relaxed group made up of friends, first and foremost. We would like the SBC to remain a safe haven of learning, encouragement, and fun. Newcomers to the betta hobby of every age are always welcome. We hope to set up a mentoring program eventually, which will provide new and inexperienced members with some nice betta breeding stock and ready advice.
We hope to see you soon!
