Gerry Weber StadionEdit profile
Gerry Weber Stadion is an indoor sports arena, located in Halle, North Rhine-Westphalia, in Germany. The capacity of the arena is 12,300 people and it was opened in 1992.
It hosts the Gerry Weber Open every year in June. It is one of the few grass court tournaments around.
The stadium has a retractable roof which can be closed in 88 seconds so that tennis games can continue when it begins to rain.
The stadium is heated and also used for other sport events (handball, basketball, volleyball and boxing), TV shows and concerts.
In January 2007, several games of the Handball World Championship took place there; most of them were sold out with 11,000 spectators.
Halle Gerry-Weber-Stadion railway station is located 500m from the stadium on the Osnabrück to Bielefeld railway line.Links
