In the framework of the European project Erasmus + Sport: European Sports Network for Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities - ReSport and the European Week of Sports "Beactive, held in Slovenia under the auspices of the Slovenian Olympic Committee, we successfully implemented outdoor sports activities and measurements of physical abilities for people disabilities under the name: Outdoor sports - the right choice for you, on Monday, September 25, 2017.
145 people with disabilities and others from our European ReSport Project Network attended the activities which took place on the sports surfaces of the General Maistra barracks in Maribor. They met and tried out the following sports activities: FOOTGOLF, NETBALL, CROSSBOCCIA, SLACKLINE, SPORTS ORIENTATION AND GYMSTICK NORDIC WALKING program.
Participants also special body measurements with an INBODY device offering advanced analysis of fats, muscles, liquids, etc. Other measurements and tests (the blood sugar, the blood pressure, etc.) were also introduced.
Despite the occasional rainy weather, the atmosphere was excellent, and the participants were satisfied with the event organization. We would like to thank all volunteers and sponsors who helped us. We highly appreciated also the presence of the Mayor of the Maribor Municipality dr. Andrej Fištravec, who introduced the start of the game of netball. His presence was a great honor and pleasure for us.
