38 school stadiums opened for public use this summer

Starting from June 13 until August 30, Tallinn will open 38 municipal school stadiums for free public use. The official Launch will take place on June 13 at noon at the Kristiine Spordimaja's outdoor field, with a concert by Clicherik & Mäx and OLLIE in the evening at the Pelgulinna School stadium.

"Tomorrow marks the beginning of the long-awaited summer vacation for children and young people, and we want to ensure they have the opportunity to spend their free time actively and healthily. And why not do it together with family and friends! That's why we are opening the sports fields of Tallinn schools for the entire summer," said Tallinn Mayor Jevgeni Ossinovski. "Opening the stadiums allows children and young people to engage in sports outside of school hours and provides a great alternative to electronic devices. It also brings communities together by offering an opportunity to do something together."

This is the fourth consecutive summer that Tallinn school stadiums will be open to the public. Each year, the number of participating stadiums has increased, and the experience has been very positive for all parties involved. This summer, 38 school stadiums will be open, with the possibility of more being added to the list.

The stadiums will be open for free use from June 13 to August 30, every day from 10:00 to 21:00. Stadiums that are under renovation will not be open for the summer.

The summer of free stadium access will kick off with a concert at the Pelgulinna School (Mulla 7) stadium on June 13. Clicherik & Mäx will perform at 19:00, followed by OLLIE at 20:00. The event is free.

For the first time, sports equipment boxes will be placed at the sports fields, allowing users to borrow balls and other equipment on-site. The first sports equipment boxes will be handed over to schools at the Kristiine Spordimaja outdoor field on June 13 at noon. All boxes will be delivered to the school stadiums by Jaanipäev (Midsummer Day). Additionally, the boxes will be placed at outdoor fields managed by the Tallinn Culture & Sports Department at Kristiine Spordimaja, Pirita Spordikeskus, Nõmme Spordikeskus, and Tondiraba Park. The equipment boxes were prepared in collaboration between the Tallinn Culture & Sports Department and the Foundation for Physical Activity Competence Center.

While the stadiums are open to the public for free, schools may charge a rental fee for organizing regular training sessions and league games. Information about reserved times can be found on the Tallinn Education Department's website.

The public use of the stadiums is organized by the Tallinn Education Department. Daily opening and closing of the stadiums, as well as maintenance issues, are managed by the district governments. If there are any problems with cleanliness or equipment at the stadiums, please report them to the city's helpline at 14410.
