Tennis Stadium "Am Rothenbaum"
Germany is a tennis nation with many top athletes in deaf sports. The reigning double world champions Urs Breitenberger and Sebastian Schäfer and the reigning mixed world champions Heike Albrecht and Urs Breitenberger are looking forward to exciting competitions in the professional tennis facility “Am Rothenbaum” in Hamburg.
The tennis ball doesn’t know how old I am. The ball does not know whether I am a man or a woman or whether I come from a communist country or not. Sport has always overcome these barriers.
