Are you 10 to 26 years old and enjoy exercise? Then do not hesitate and come compete with both disabled and able-bodied athletes from all across Europe! Also, becoming a volunteer will allow you to experience an international sport event. So, become involved in the Games organisation and get a volunteer certificate.
The 11th year of Emil Open has finished. More than five hundred disabled athletes did sports and strengthened their friendships on Brno sports grounds. We talked to Pavel Zbožínek, president of Emil Open, about the games, fundraising and the joy of helping those in need.
For the eleventh time, Brno hosts the summer European Youth Games for the disabled Emil Open. From 22nd to 26th June, athletes aged ten to twenty six years old with disabilities will compete on Brno sports ground. Young athletes will compete in seven sports and in more than 30 disciplines.
Mgr. Pavel Vecenovský, Phd fulfilled his positive relationship towards table tennis by teaching at the Faculty of Sports Studies and by leading the VSK University Brno club. Always happy and with a smile, you can meet him at Emil Open in the role of table tennis director.
The European Youth Games for the Disabled are an international and a social gathering of young people with disabilities.
The expected number of international participants and the sport and accompanying programme make the event unique and of a European format.
The Games follow on from the previous successful editions.
On behalf of our athletes and myself, let me thank all the organisers for the perfect conditions you provided us with in Brno. On behalf of our team I can say that the Games fulfilled their goal. Our children were motivated to do sport and also had the opportunity of meeting with their peers from other countries. They could explore Brno as a beautiful city but also as a potential city of their university studies. I will be pleased if you invite us next time.
The meals were good, accommodation satisfactory. I greatly appreciate the favours of the organisers as well as the cooks and other boarding and lodging facilities employees.
