What the experts say about Street Racket!
AuthPeter Pattke, President, Association of PE Teachers, Germanyor's name
Attention! Street Racket is, in a very positive way, very contagious and dangerous. After the amazing workshops lead by Street Racket founder Marcel Straub during our annual PE conference all the participants are thrilled here. They are thrilled about the simplicity and variety of the Street Racket concept and they will certainly pass in on to their colleagues, classes and students. This concept is unstoppable! I have rarely seen our teachers so amazed during and after a workshop – Street Racket was an absolute highlight at the annual PE conference in Germany.
I recommend, I even urge all my colleagues, to implement Street Racket in their schools, no matter where they teach and no matter how old the students are!
Ivy Pochoda, writer (NY Times no1 bestseller EPOCA along with her friend Kobe Bryant) and former professional athlete
Street Racket is a revelation and a revolution in sports. Sports are essential in developing coordination and confidence, but also open doors to creativity and intelligence. Most importantly, sports should be available to any and all regardless of circumstance—they are a basic human right. Street Racket is a visionary organization that understands this fundamental necessity and has figured out a brilliant and simple way to engage anyone in play, anywhere, and in any situation.
Kobus Stofberg, Director of Student Affairs, Hout Bay International School, South Africa
It was a great pleasure to welcome the Street Racket team at Hout Bay International School. Within a few minutes they had our students involved in a fantastic set of skill based games and activities. This is without a doubt a brilliant concept and product and our school will be exploring options of implementing this within our Physical Education curriculum. The benefits are endless and the games so enjoyable that students will want to play it during their breaks.
Marc Probst, CEO Swiss Academy for Development (SAD)
Feel free to change: Street Racket is simple and very intuitive. This enables everyone – no matter if young or old – to enjoy the many game forms and to be active. Just draw your court, take the racket and hit that ball.
Andreas Stocker, CEO Swiss Optological Center for Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation
Street racket is the perfect balance to the one-sided use of our eyes, which almost only takes place at a very short distance. We need movement to come back into our lives, and thus into our eyes, Street Racket is ideal to ensure the necessary balance between near and far vision. As a result, Street Racket also has great potential for the prevention of myopia.
Jaakko Lattu, Program Director, International Seminar for P.E. Teachers at Sport Institute of Finland
The Street Racket workshops were outstanding and got great feedback from the P.E. teachers from different levels of education! The idea and foundation behind the concept is special and the game can be easily modified to different ages, groups and skill levels. I could see Street Racket played just because it is fun but also because it can be a great tool for teachers to help children learn different motor, social or cognitive skills – and having fun doing it! And what I also love about Street Racket is that it is easily played outdoors, you will find a good space just about anywhere. We were thankful to have Marcel inspiring our seminar participants from 20 different countries.
Jill Van Der Merwe, Physical Education Teacher & Tennis Coach
I immediately identified with Street Racket because of my background as a PE teacher and a tennis coach. Children should never stand in line or sit at the side and Street Racket allows full participation in the class as it maximizes the available space enabling many to move more simultaneously. The aim of physical education is to facilitate physical, emotional, social and cognitive development – and Street Racket does it all!
