The association centre

In 1971, the old gymnasium of the Lieser sports club was so outdated that renovation was imperative. In addition, the lack of an equipment room was becoming increasingly noticeable.
An inspection of the facility was therefore carried out with representatives of the district administration. The result was that without a change in the structural substance, 80,000 DM would have to be budgeted for, and with the planned extension, at least 250,000 DM.
In 1972, the general meeting of the association approved the measure and the executive board submitted a new application for inclusion in the district’s funding programme. One year later, the local municipality was directly asked to sponsor the project and to plan the investment for 1976.
In 1980, a transfer agreement was concluded between the TuS Lieser, represented by the 1st chairman Heinrich Seiwert, and the local municipality, represented by the local mayor Rudolf Kiesgen. In return for taking over the construction work and its costs, the association transferred the land ownership to the municipality. The municipal council then decided to award the contract for the preparation of the planning documents to the architects Robert Steinmetz and Karlklaus Weber.
The plans called for the construction of a 15 x 27 m hall with disabled access, changing rooms and showers, as well as two additional rooms for non-sports clubs. A covered play area for the kindergarten was also included.
The eligible costs for the area “sports hall with ancillary rooms” as well as technical rooms in the basement were set at DM 1,220,000 by the district government of Trier.
The first excavator rolled in on Monday, 3 September 1984, and it was time to say goodbye to the old hall. A good week later, the first cut of the spade was made in the presence of the councillors Gessinger and Ertz of the Bernkastel-Kues municipality, the representatives of the local community and the architects. Despite the adverse weather conditions of the particularly cold and snowy winter, the topping-out ceremony took place in February 1985.
The entire facility, including the permanently installed sports equipment in the hall, cost about DM 1.6 million.
In the sports area and in the group room, the Turn- und Sportverein 1911 e.V. is the largest user group. It was now possible to conduct not only fitness and popular sports in the hall but also qualified competitive training such as volleyball, football, karate or table tennis. Badminton and trampolining were also possible on a competitive basis, as the hall roof construction has a height of more than 7.00 metres.
Furthermore, the hall is firmly in the hands of the jesters at carnival time and serves the carnival association Spumbaken Lieser as a large “Narrhalla” for the popular carnival sessions and Rose Monday every year.
On Sunday, 24 August 1985, the new club centre was inaugurated with a ceremony.
