The construction of the Boris Becker International Tennis Academy in Hochheim, Hesse, has officially begun the groundbreaking ceremony.
The patron saint did not miss the time to attend the ceremony on the 48,000 square meter site. “It’s great that the plans have come true despite the Corona crisis. The project didn’t falter, but there was no planning certainty,” Becker said. “So it’s a small miracle that we’re standing here today, despite the pandemic.”
During the event, investor Khaled Ezzedine received an official building permit for the 22 million euro project. Immediately afterwards, the first excavators rolled on. In September 2021, the Tennis Academy, with the world’s largest indoor hall with 21 seats, will be complemented by a further 18 outdoor courts, a 110-room hotel, a restaurant, a gymnasium and a Boris Becker museum. The tennis hall is even scheduled to open in the fall of this year.
