All about ...

It's a mighty impressive venue is the Ahorn Sportpark. It's a public facility which was built over 20 years ago thanks to the vision of Heinz Nixdorf, and has been extended significantly in the intervening years, capital expenditure so far is upwards of 25 million (we'll be covering its history and facilities in other articles).

On the eve of the event the Managing Director of the facility Willie Lenz, along with committee members Andreas Dirkes and Prof Dr Uwe Kern and tournament organisers Andreas Preising and Norman Farthing met with WSF President N Ramachandran to describe the centre with the aid of a ten-minute video presentation.

"The people and youth of Paderborn are truly fortunate to this wonderful sports arena," commented the WSF President, "it's hard to believe it was built 20 years ago, it still looks brand new. The private/public model it's built on is an example to any community wishing to provide accessible sporting facilities for its members."

Gifts were exchanged and Mr Ramachandran signed the centre's Guest Book.

"On behalf of the WSF I thank the City and all the people for hosting this World Team Championship," concluded Mr Ramachandran.
