Bochumer Str. 94
About the place
In a 142m² large, previously unused warehouse, the sports stall opened in January 2020. Especially the local social institutions, the youth club Ücky, Mobilie Kita and the association “Tausche Bildung für Wohnen” (Exchanging Education for Living) benefit from the conversion of the warehouse into a space for physical movement. Together with the cooperation partner Schalke hilft!, offers for neighbourhood residents will also be created. The aim is to strengthen social integration through exercise and to intensify social cohesion in the neighbourhood. Before it was used as a place for physical movement, the hall was used as storage space for a supermarket, a sports goods store and a bicycle workshop.
