After seven years of hard struggle GAM3 is now ready to open its first "StreetMekka" in Copenhagen. When StreetMekka opens with a grand party on Saturday 16. October, it will contain indoor facilities for street sports such as Parkour, dance, DJ-ing and of course Streetball.
It all started with a whole in the asphalt in two local street ballers favorite court in a Copenhagen City borough. Khuram and Samir wanted the municipality to fix the asphalt but along the way they came up with the idea of creating an indoor street facility, in order to nurse their passion for streetball all year round. With the support from the Mayor of Copenhagen things started rolling and ended up with a 3 million euro project and 2.240 m2 of indoor urban sports jungle.
The goal is to develop the facility towards a 24-365 opening policy and spread the concept of indoor street sports facilities to other countries with a sweet tooth for active youths with a Do It Yourself mentality.
