Skate Hall Opening

After two years of working towards this goal, the Skateistan team is extremely pleased to announce the official opening of Kabul’s largest indoor sports facility and first skatepark at 2 p.m. on October 29, 2009. This milestone has been achieved through the collaborative efforts of an Afghan and international team.

The opening will begin with short greetings from international donors and Afghan dignitaries. The speeches will be followed by a skateboarding demonstration by Afghan girls and boys, together with internationally-renowned professional skateboarders, on the newly built ramps and obstacles.
