How did the German Tennis Federation communicate to the public the

2020 refurbishments of the Hamburg tennis facilities?


a personal TOUCH

A boy visits the stadium, admires the past champions and dreams of playing there one day himself. Now a grown up tennis player, his dream finally becomes reality.



Virtual before-after-transformations of the facilities show the changes in design and quality of the refurbishment  in a highly interactive manner and within seconds.



Former tennis champion Michael Stich supported the project and secretly acquired an important role in our story: he symbolically stands for the boy who wants to play at Rothenbaum one day himself. In 1993, Michael won the tournament after watching so many games as a child with his parents. Congrats!

"Zunächst herrschte nach eurem Film Schweigen im Saal weil alle gerührt waren. Dann klatschten plötzlich alle vor Begeisterung. Das habe ich so noch nie erlebt!"
