Tennis professional Richard Kraijcek has a foundation that focuses on “The promotion of sports activities in a socially safe situation for young people in those districts where the possibilities are limited“.
They create playgrounds across the Netherlands in underserved urban areas to be a multifunctional combination of sports and play. For their anniversary, they wanted to build the largest Kraijcek Playground in the country.
800 kids, aged 6-18 yrs old had a blast. Working with representatives from the various athletic associations, we divided the kids into 8 different zones. From traditional sports such as football and tennis to parkour and obstacle running, there was a full day of challenges, skill tests and pure fun. Kid reporters captured the day and worked with media companies to produce the event recaps.
