Active Company Antwerp takes ‘Pride in sports’ and offers active sports for LGBTQIA+ people and all those who support us. You need to be at least 18 years of age to participate in activities or to become a member.
At fixed dates, we can be found at sports halls, swimming pools and other locations in the Antwerp area, depending on the sport. One Sunday every month, you can join us on a biking or hiking trip to the most beautiful natural areas in the wide region. Besides the 10 sports we offer, there are also the weekly rehearsals of our choir ‘Pink Noise’.
You decide how often and when to participate in whichever activity. As a member, you will have access to every activity, always at reduced members’ rates. From total beginners to star players (well ...), we have them all. We welcome everyone.
If you are interested, we suggest you simply stop by. Participating a first time in any activity is free of charge and of any membership obligation.
Don’t just exercise, socialise! If you’re up for it, you can join your team members at (inter)national tournaments, on weekend trips, ski trips or a night out on the town, at our regularly held bar nights (BarACA), or for drinks and conversation after the usual activity. Never a dull moment with our 450 members!

The chance to make lots of new friends!
As an Active Company Antwerp member, you will be insured while exercising through the Sporta sports insurance. For new members, ACA will handle your Sporta registration upon payment of your membership fee and after activation of your membership. Sporta will send you a confirmation email about this, which will also contain your Sporta credentials.
What does this insurance cover?
All our members are insured for all sports and non-sports related activities as a club, including in a foreign country.
The Sporta Team sports insurance does not include an excess. This means that all eligible costs will be reimbursed, even small amounts.
You will be insured at all times around the globe during jogging, hiking, biking, swimming, hitting the gym, roller blading and practising yoga.
The medical and pharmaceutical costs after a sports-related accident are reimbursed by your sports insurance. You may even receive compensation if your glasses were damaged (in case of a head injury).
Costs aren’t capped for procedures recognised by the Belgian National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance after physical injuries.
You’re able to seek compensation until 3 years after your sports injury.
All information about the Sporta insurance can be found on their website (in Dutch).
The health insurance fund will refund part of your membership fee!
Each year, the health insurance funds reimburse part of your membership fee. For more information about the refunded amount and the application procedure, we refer to the website of your health insurance fund.
The required refund form will now come from Sporta:
ACA will send the refund form to the e-mail address in your Sporta profile before end of March, and this for all members who payed their membership fee for the current year by that time. So make sure that your details at Sporta are correct in time!
Members who pay their membership fee later on, will receive the refund form shortly afterwards.
You read that right: every activity is free the first time*… It is your 'free trial' to get acquainted with the offer of Active Company Antwerp.
* Excludes activities where it is stated that this rule does not apply. The 'free trial' is in principle limited to the permanent activities of Active Company VZW. The 'free trial' offer certainly does not apply to: parties, activities under the ActivExtra series, special weekends...
Cost per activity
Active Company Antwerp works with a sports punch card as a payment system. These sports punch cards can only be purchased on site from the cashier at each activity. A sports punch card costs € 20 and consists of 20 cutting squares of € 1 each. Only Active Company Antwerp members can buy and use a sports punch card. You can pay for all our activities with the same punch card.
The sports punch card is paid by the Payconiq app. At some sports, it’s still possible to pay in cash. Non-members are also allowed to participate occasionally.
Prices per activity:
*Tennis - during the summer season, most players take advantage of a summer subscription for unlimited play. Non-summer subscribers pay the non-member rate directly to the tennis club.
**Waterpolo - regular participant? Pay €150,-- (from July €75,--) annually and you’ll have unlimited access to all Waterpolo trainings. No need for the multi-turn ticket and you can join the recreational tournament for free
Young adult discount (< 26 years old)
