The order of the Hessian state government to ban meetings with more than 100 participants has led the city of Frankfurt to decide to close sports facilities and swimming pools to the public. Even if sport is supposed to benefit health, it currently poses a risk for the further spread of the corona virus. For this reason, municipal sports facilities and sports rooms cannot continue to be operated and used as usual. </Approximately 190 school sports halls are affected, and the <strong>Factory Sports Hall and the Winter Sports Hall are closed until further notice. Also the sports rooms of the Saalbau are not usable, because the Saalbau houses were closed. The gymnastics and sports clubs are informed that no sports activities can take place there at the moment. They will also be informed when sports operations are possible again. </The Sportpark Preungesheim and the S<strong>port- und Freizeitzentrum Frankfurt-Kalbach (athletics hall, multipurpose hall and tennis hall) are also closed. This also applies to all sports facilities managed by the city (Stadium Brentanobad, sports facility Hahnstraße, Bockenheim, Dornbusch, Goldstein, Rebstock, Babenhäuser Landstraße. and Nieder-Eschbach), which are no longer available for training and games and for public use with immediate effect. Clubs that manage municipal sports facilities are required to discontinue sports and games operations. This also applies to the clubs using the facilities. Clubs with their own halls and sports facilities are recommended to follow this regulation as well.
The Fraport Arena is also closed: All organizers are informed that until further notice no events can take place there. The Bundesliga clubs Fraport Skyliners and United Volleys have already suspended their games. And the Ice Sports Hall will also be closed from Tuesday, March 17, until further notice.
The situation is currently developing very dynamically and is constantly being closely monitored by those responsible. Our gymnastics and sports clubs as well as the public will be informed promptly about any changes, for example via http://www.frankfurt.de
"I wish all my fellow citizens good health and the strength to deal with the restrictions that are now temporarily necessary in as relaxed a manner as possible. I encourage healthy sportsmen and women to use the time freed up, which cannot be devoted to their beloved sport at present, to support others and to offer help to those in danger and in need in their circle of acquaintances", says Head of the Sports Department Markus Frank.
An additional measure to slow down and contain the spread of the new corona virus is the discontinuation of all swimming, sauna, course and fitness activities in all Frankfurt adventure and indoor pools from Tuesday, 17 March.
following pools are affected by the closure: Rebstockbad, Titus Thermen, Panoramabad Bornheim, Riedbad Bergen-Enkheim, Hallenbad Höchst and Textorbad.
