Sports garden for Durban

2008-07-11 00:00

Skateboarders are not just “posers with expensive clothes”. Soccer is not just for cool dudes with expensive kit. Instead, soccer is one of the most universal games on the planet and sport in general breaks down barriers and teaches youngsters from all backgrounds the value of understanding and mutual respect.

The original sports park in Bremen was a response to complaints from youngsters that there was not enough space or facilities to take part in social sports. It was created largely thanks to the efforts of the young people themselves, who helped raise some of the funds. It now houses soccer, hockey, tennis and horse riding facilities, a BMX track, a skateboarding park and a beach volley ball court. Although it is used by people from ages six to 60, it is the chief stomping ground for sport enthusiasts under 28. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
