Sports Committee met at Sportfreunde Kladow. The artificial turf of the club on the Gößweinsteiner Gang (2500 members, boss Marlon Otter) has been a bad renovation case for years. By 2024, City Councilor Frank Bewig, CDU, wants to demolish the space for 1.5 million and have it rebuilt – here are the plans in the Tagesspiegel.
After all the complaints, the sports committee around Lars Reinefahl, CDU, met on the club premises on Monday. The newly elected Spandau senior representative around Karl-Heinz Klocke was also there, took a photo and reported: “The proportion of seniors who are physically active is 20% of the members.”

Fair play gesture of the month for SC Siemensstadt. Applause, Osman Toprak! The youth coach of SC Siemensstadt has been awarded the “Fair Play Gesture of the Month” by the Berlin Football Association for his conduct. What happened? SC Siemensstadt II and 1. FC Schöneberg II met in the title race of the C-Junior district class A. All of this became a minor matter “shortly after the start of the second half, when a player from Schöneberg fell badly without external influence,” writes the football association. “The game was then interrupted for a long time and the players and those in charge at 1. FC Schöneberg were thinking about their teammates.” So Siemensstadt coach Toprak decided to end the game early and give the guests the current score of 1:3 allow. BFV President Bernd Schultz accepted the award – here is a photo of the honoree.

Grandstand for Blau-Weiss Spandau? The sports field on Wilhelmstraße will be demolished by 2024 and rebuilt 40 meters to the south. I presented the 50 million euro plans – has to do with the new construction of the neighboring Bertolt Brecht School – in detail here in the Tagesspiegel newsletter. City Councilor for Sports Frank Bewig, CDU, was a guest in the Blau-Weiss Spandau clubhouse “Endspiel”, which is also being demolished. The club will have to play elsewhere during the construction phase of at least a year before the new pitch is ready. Vice-Chairman Bernd Schuster has already expressed lively ideas for the new sports field: “a ball stop net, a grandstand or a multi-purpose room in the clubhouse”. Q: blau-weiss-spandau.de

111 kilometers in 24 hours. This message makes your knees tremble from the effort just reading it! “The SUP kids from Wasserfreunde Spandau used the 24-hour charity marathon for the benefit of Unicef for an impressive performance,” Spandau’s SUP expert Oliver Tusche tells me. For example, Marlon Daskiran paddled 24 hours, covered 111 kilometers and received a Unicef soccer ball for this achievement, autographed by national soccer player Julian Draxler. P.S: I wrote last week that the SUP department is based behind the citadel, but the paddlers have moved on. Tusche: “We are now at the Waterkant and at the Plötzensee lido.” sup04.de
