On your marks - ready - RUHR GAMES

HOLIDAYS! The RUHR GAMES have been officially opened since 14.00 hrs - and visitors are already pouring into the grounds in the best weather. The joy is written all over their faces and that of the participants: Everywhere there are sporting performances to discover, the innumerable participatory activities don't let the kids and teenagers get bored - pure experience!

Dr. Joachim Stamp, Minister for Children, Family, Refugees and Integration of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, welcomed the more than 170 participating teams of the NRW Street Basketball Tour 2019 and wished them all fair games, great successes and peaceful encounters for the coming days. Afterwards the minister spontaneously proved his sporting qualities and sunk his free-throw.

Have fun at the BMX Flatland Best Trick Contest, at the Street Basketball (NRW Tour) Finals, at the Table Tennis Westd. Championship Finals, at the Judo Länderkampf and much more...and of course at Cro after the brilliant opening ceremony at 7.45 pm.
