SC Siemensstadt: Parking spaces cost from now on. This sports news from SC Siemensstadt is also interesting: Spandau’s largest sports club (over 6000 people) introduces parking fees in front of the sports area with the large swimming pool. As of June 1, Contipark will operate the parking lot, reports Matthias Brauner’s club. The reason, among other things, long-term parkers and non-sports guests who block everything. But there are other reasons too.

“Of course we want to encourage our members and customers to use other means of transport than the car to do sports. The housing density in our area is increasing rapidly, more and more people can come to us on foot or by bike. We also want to consciously strengthen this environmental concept. To do this, we will soon improve the infrastructure, e.g. for parking bicycles.” Sports users do not pay a fortune: the first two hours cost 1 euro.

Live stream: Spandau honors the best athletes. “After two years of pandemic, the traditional Spandau athletes’ ceremony is finally celebrating its comeback this year in the usual festive ambience of the citadel,” reports Frank Bewig, CDU, city councilor for sports. Almost 190 title holders of the year 2021 are expected in the ‘Alten Kaserne’ (this is the rear transverse building in the Zitadellenhof), who have at least become Berlin champions. It starts on Wednesday, 5 p.m., and district mayor Carola Brückner, SPD, will also be there. Great: The event will be broadcast as a live stream – here is the YouTube link.

Finally fresh money for the Kladow sports field. It is a bad case of renovation, there was even a threat of closure – because the artificial turf on the advertising boards is extremely wavy.

Speed ​​check before school. Here’s a great note from the athletics department of TSV Spandau 1860 around Thorsten Hanf (3200 members). The club not only has 24 sports on offer, but also clever ideas. “How do you get Spandau’s children and young people interested in exercise again after the long corona restrictions? The TSV 1860 has a convincing answer to this question: ‘Speedy Spandales'”, based on Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse in Mexico. These are 30-meter sprints, the time of which is measured using a light barrier.” And how’s it going? “The feedback from the Spandau schools is so numerous that it will not be possible to visit all schools with the light barriers before the summer holidays,” says sports and school councilor Frank Bewig, CDU, who is visiting the primary school at Eichenwald in Hakenfelde this week (Boss Sabine Dargel, 420 kids). Is the ex-basketball player and tennis player faster than the kids? –

There are various disciplines such as the 5 or 10 km distance, walking, low-barrier runs for wheelchair users, youth and children’s runs. The route leads over the terrain and partly through the adjacent Spandau Forest. Motto this year: “Make a detour around our church on Whit Monday.” Who wants to run:

The water polo players from Wasserfreunde Spandau are also in the final and are happy to have fans.

A third final would take place on Sunday, June 5th.

Handball: VfV women sensationally win the Berlin Cup. The addendum has to be: what a party it was in the stands – with applause, green jerseys, lots of singing and even Spandau flags. Below, the women of VfV Spandau danced across the hall floor and hugged each other. Spandau’s best handball players recently became champions in the Oberliga (ranging from the Baltic Sea coast to the Spreewald). And now they have also won the Berlin State Cup in the final. In the hall on Glockenturmstraße, VfV defeated the higher-class Berlin TSC 27:26. Here is a great mini video and here are photos of the large Spandau fan block: “Double winner, double winner, hey, hey!”. The handball department online:
