Rabobank, DLL and Markteffect sign partnership with Partnerfonds Brainport Eindhoven
As a kid, he dreamed of a park like this. A place where you can do tricks on a BMX bike and where all urban sports come together. Shahim Azimi (32) is therefore proud that this park - partly thanks to the support of the Regio Deal - could be realized. Since 2019 he has been teaching with his association Barsloths (calisthenics) in the Urban Sportpark in Eindhoven. 'I can be found here about five times a week as a volunteer, trainer and athlete. I can do my thing here.'
We have an obstacle course for a survival and obstacle run, calisthenics and freerunning, a pumptrack for BMX, opportunities to skate and scoot, play and exercise equipment, a soccer cage, but also a playground for children. In fact, you can't think of anything else, or it's there! But perhaps even more important: it is public. Everyone is welcome here.'
According to Shahim, urban parks are much more common on the streets of other countries. There you see more of these kinds of places, where both clubs and schools as well as individual athletes can make free use of it. Companies also benefit from this park. Red Bull, for example, organized the quarter finals of the Pumptrack here. But clubs also organize competitions here on a regular basis.
