A sports ground for IMBEWU

01.12.2005 | Foundation

Yesterday, in the name of the Roger Federer Foundation, Lynette and Robbie Federer inaugurated a multipurpose sports site in the small municipality of Zwide, South Africa. During the solemn ceremony, the parents of Roger Federer handed over the site to the local organisation IMBEWU. The project has been realized and financed in close cooperation with Roger Federer's sponsor Nike.


The site contains two tennis courts as well as a court for basketball, netball and soccer. "I am tremendously proud that we have succeeded in making these great sport facilities available to the children and the young people. A great big thanks goes to Nike for the implementation. I am convinced that my sponsor will to do whatever it takes to maintain the site in perfect shape in the years to come so that as many kids as possible will be able to go in for sports and have a lot of fun there for a long time", said Roger.


Futher to housing sports activities the site serves a second purpose: in the future it will be the center for activities of the community - such as programs for AIDS-prevention. The courts are part of the international recycling program lead by Nike and are made of recycled shoes.
