In Prague and Brno, you can practice for free at selected sports venues. Skating rinks attract the most – ČT24 – Czech Television
Eight-year-old Samuel and eleven-year-old Frederik play baseball in the garden with this one, they could try it for the first time on the field with a coach. The children did not pay for the training. The Eagles Prague Club is one of those that repeatedly participates in a project called Free Sports Week. “We want the children to try to burn, to throw, to run here, just to broaden their sports horizons a bit,” said coach Daniel Krejčičík.
The Squash Haštal hall is also open free of charge. Dalibor Jarolím’s family uses the event regularly. They have already tried squash this year, they are still planning skating. “We were a little upset that it wasn’t last year, so we had to do something else, but we’re taking advantage of it this year, it’s perfect with the kids,” Jarolim said.
This year there is less interest
So far this year, the operator of the sports ground sees less interest. “I’m afraid that people are used to being at home, watching television, which I think is quite catastrophic for the overall population,” said Squash Haštal chairman Tomáš Krpálek.
In the capital, over fifty sports venues participate in the project. People can try both traditional winter sports and less common ones, such as boxing or paintball. The aim of the event is to show the possibilities of active sports in the city and at the same time to attract even the youngest children to sports.
Outdoor ice rink betting
For the sixth time, the project is also taking place in Brno. Over ten sports venues offer free sports from Monday to Wednesday. Without paying, they will swim until Wednesday, climb a climbing wall or skate.
One of the places where Brno residents can come and play for free is the ice rink behind Lužánky.
“We are struggling with low attendance throughout this year. Again, it was not standard, the reason was the strict rules of proving infectivity, “said Starez Sport spokeswoman Michaela Dittrichová. There’s no need outside. Yes, and in some places also reservations in advance at all indoor sports grounds.
