VfB Schwarz-Rot Ulm e.V. that was founded in 1949 offers its members a varied and professional range of sports and exercises. The club is made up of 15 sections where all interested parties can find what they are looking for.
The VfB that is known today as the Eselberg club has its roots in a Wilhelmsburg club. The majority of the sports enthusiasts from the club's start-up phases were refugees, repatriates, evacuees and resettlers from all possible areas in Europe. They created their own small world in the Wilhelmsburg area with assistance from the city – and this also included the desire to get involved in physical activity.
VfB Ulm is now explicitly geared towards women with a migrant background in cooperation with the "aktiF” project, the shelter for children and women in the Caritas Ulm-Alb-Donau refugee accommodation and the Department for Social Affairs on the Eselsberg in the city of Ulm. The partners offer a yoga course for women directly in the refugee accommodation at the Hindenburg barracks in Mähringer Weg. Yoga teacher Özgül Tatar is impressed by the good atmosphere and the participants who are enthusiastic and have fun.
