The athletes and Slovenia Open always feel at home and welcome in Laško. But this year they will all be hosted in a renovated Tri Lilije hall. The investment was co-financed by the Slovenian Ministry of Economy, Tourism and Sport (250,000 EUR) and the Foundation for Sport (38,744 EUR), covering two segments: the modernization of the cooling system, and replacement of the parquet floor, repairs and cleaning of the mobile stands plus new markings on the floor.

“We love the renovated venue, opening up new dimensions and possibilities for development of sports tourism in Laško,” concludes Vecko, who will also be traditionally putting together the world’s strongest training camp in Laško in the summer as part of preparations for the Paralympic Games. More than 10 countries have already confirmed their involvement and the participants in the camp usually win between 25-35 medals at the Paralympics.
