Hooligans probably caused 3,000 euros of damage to the air dome in Rottach-Egern on Monday.
Because it is not the first case, the TC wants to install cameras.
Rottach-Egern – Udo Scherer, chairman of the TC Rottach-Egern, is somewhat stunned.
Unknown hooligans damaged the tennis club's air dome.
The vandals made three cuts, up to 55 centimeters long, in the hall.
Clearly willful, according to Scherer.
The TC noticed the damage on Monday;
and just in time, before the hall collapses, members have provisionally sealed the slits with tape.
"Thanks to the stable second shell on the inside, only a small amount of air escaped," explains Scherer.
Cuts in solid foil: This requires a lot of force
"It's not a rascal prank, children are not able to cut such long cuts in the solid foil, it takes a lot of strength," says the TC chairman, who immediately called the police on 08022/98780 and filed a criminal complaint against unknown persons asked.
Due to further incidents: TC installs video surveillance
The TC Rottach suffered damage of around 3000 euros as a result of the vandalism.
The manufacturer will take care of the repair.
But that's not all of the financial expenditure.
"We will install video surveillance," announces Scherer, who puts the costs at around 8,500 euros.
The reason for the measure is not only the current incident.
As the TC boss further reports, there has been further willful damage of a smaller nature in the interior of the hall in the past two months.
Vandalism "almost asocial"
The TC set up the hall in November 2021 and received permission from the authorities to leave it standing in the summer.
Not everyone likes that, as Scherer knows.
But what the club doesn't know is who is responsible for the willful damage to the hall, especially since the crime is also directed against the 160 children from the entire Miesbach district who train in the hall every week.
Furthermore, TC members and also many holiday guests.
Scherer: "This is also advertising for the tourist resort of Rottach-Egern." The act was therefore "downright antisocial".
