Sport at TSV Barsinghausen has been even safer for a few months. In March, the club installed a mobile air filter in its own sports hall at the Waldstadion. The association presented the new device at a press conference. It can be programmed for so-called activity phases: The filter performance can be adapted to the utilization of the hall in several stages. So far, the beneficiaries have been judo, dancing and table tennis. All three are considered individual sports and were therefore allowed to train under strict conditions even during the lockdown. “I have been looking for a facility like this since October 2020 to make it safer for our club members to practice their sport. It was foreseeable that the next corona wave would come, ”says chairman Klaus-Jürgen Dallmann. One example was TSV Ingeln / Oesselse, which had already installed a filter system in its hall. However, the question of support for the acquisition costs of 12,500 euros was not an easy one, as the first answer from the Regional Sports Association (RSB) was: There is no funding for mobile systems. Ultimately, Dallmann solved this problem and has already collected money from the Lotto Sport Foundation, the Hanover Sports Fund and the Stadtsparkasse Barsinghausen. Commitments from the RSB and the city of Barsinghausen are still pending, but should be made in September. “Then I have a funding rate of 80 percent,” says a pleased Dallmann.
