Baden-Württemberg: Accommodation for refugees: sports associations want to use halls

Ulm (dpa / lsw) - In view of the continued high number of refugees in the south-west, sports associations have called for sports halls and swimming pools to be kept open for sports activities. "We urgently need time in sports halls and swimming pools, the backlog demand is immense," said Joachim Spägele, managing director of the Badischer Sportbund Freiburg, which is responsible for southern Baden, of the "Südwest Presse" in Ulm. Otherwise, damage to the health of children and young people is to be feared.

The president of the Badischer Sportbund Nord, based in Karlsruhe, Gert Rudolph, also complained: "It would be a disaster for reasons of health promotion if children and young people were to stand in front of closed halls in winter." Clubs are always there when it comes to integration, added Rudolph. Not least, children and young people benefited from this. Closing sports halls would be counterproductive. Especially since these are not adequate accommodation for refugees, the sports official told the newspaper.

According to the Ministry of Migration in Stuttgart, the capacity limit of the state's initial reception has been reached. In the current situation, additional refugee accommodation and short-term emergency accommodation would have to be created again, said a spokesman.

This usually means an additional challenge, especially for the municipalities. According to a spokesman, three sports halls in the cities of Konstanz, Radolfzell and Singen are already being used to accommodate refugees in the Konstanz district.
