Ground for a Cruyff Court has been broken in the Ghanese city of Tema. Special attention will be given to make the court with changing rooms and floodlights in the coastal city accessible for people in a wheelchair or with a disability.
A Cruyff Court is a small-sided synthetic turf court that provides children a safe space to meet and to play together. The concept was developed by the Johan Cruyff Foundation, founded by the one of the world’s best players: Johan Cruyff.
By introducing these courts, Johan Cruyff aimed at keeping children active and improving their physical and mental health.
At present, there are close to 300 Cruyff Courts all over the world. However, with courts only in Morocco and South Africa, the concept is still very new to the continent.
