Projects on the Tempelhofer Feld
One of the world's first official jugger training areas has been created on the Tempelhofer Feld.
With Jugger, a new team sport is being established in Berlin. It is a sport that is related to rugby. Jugger is played with padded weapons called pompfen. Each team sends five players onto the field per turn. Only the halfback of each team is allowed to pick up the ball (jugg). The four remaining players wear pompfen and fight their way to the opponent's goal (mal) for their runner. Jugger has been officially recognised as a sport since 2006. Further training opportunities are being created.
Jugger strengthens fairness and promotes team spirit and integration. Schools in the area as well as leisure and youth centres are specifically approached by Jugger e.V. and motivated to form their own teams. There are already Jugger teams at two schools in Neukölln. The team members build the equipment themselves under the guidance of the trainers.
Since the opening of the park, one of the world's first official Jugger training areas has been created on the grounds of Tempelhofer Feld, which is also open to the public. The training field is located near the park supervision building (entrance Oderstraße). The club holds a weekly free training session here (Sunday 2 pm), as well as other training sessions during the week. In order to be able to host national and international championships, additional pitches will be set up temporarily as needed.
The Berliner Jugger e.V. is the jugger club with the largest number of members in Germany and part of the Berliner Turnerbund.Within Berlin, Jugger e.V. works closely with TSV Rudow, which trains two jugger teams.For the first time, Jugger e.V. has found a permanent starting and training location in the Oderstraße pioneer field.
