Be an athlete
Be an athlete ‘Play with me’ is an international sporting event. It is held at the end of September or at the beginning of October.
People with special needs and those without are invited.
Tournaments in different sports, namely football, basketball, volleyball and bowling are organised.
The event wants to show that it is not important who wins; what is important is to get together, to move and do something useful for ourselves as well as to show respect for one another, even though we may be in different teams.
A special cup is given not to the winning team, but to the team who was the fairest of them all. They are given the so called ‘fair play’ cup for showing positive attitude towards their competitors and the game itself.
Besides the tournament, different workshops also take place there; judo, table tennis, polygones etc.
Foreign guests also come to the event.
Each year there are more than 1000 participants from kindergartens, schools, special schools and other institutions who come and join us. Different sports clubs from Ljubljana also come and present what they have been doing. They show the participants how much fun it is to practice sports!
This year, the event took place on the 2nd of October at the Sports Centre Triglav.
This year’s event was a bit different; due to Covid-19 measures, there were no tournaments, but the participants still had a lot of different workshops to choose from.
