Wetzlar (dpa/lhe) - The hot water supply, which was switched off in the gyms of the Lahn-Dill district for cost reasons, was criticized by athletes. "I'm not sure if this actually saves energy," said the managing director of TV Wetzlar, Alisa Schmidt, on Thursday of the German Press Agency.
The athletes would now have to shower at home - so the costs would only be shifted to private households, she said. In addition, it does not leave a good impression if the visiting teams of the current handball second half of the season have to take a cold shower or cannot wash themselves after a game.
The district announced on Tuesday in Wetzlar that it would switch off the heating and hot water treatment systems in the district's own gyms from June 1st to September 18th due to the sharp rise in energy costs. He wants to save around 100,000 euros with this. In addition to sports clubs, school sports are also affected.
