Lenka Fijalíková ZŠ a MŠ Kroměříž, F. Vančury.

I would like to express my gratitude and admiration. Thank you very much also on behalf of our athletes for organising the competitions. We will be looking forward to the next edition.


Thank you, Emil. We hope to see you next year.


We are very happy that we had been part of Emil Open 2017. We are surely coming back next year. Keep up the good work you are doing.


It´s an excellent event, but needs many improvements to be very good in my point of view.


Very rich accompanying programme. We had a lot of options to choose from.


Unfortunately, Golf Masters took place only one day, which we did not expect. The coaches were very kind and helpful though. We would have loved to spend the next day with them as originally planned.


We participated in athletics only and everything was okay. The stadium provided excellent facilities so we could spend all day there with no problems.


The meals and accommodation were very good, the coordinators were very kind and helpful. They always did their best to help us, give us information we needed or arrange necessities.


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.


The organisers were very helpful.


We will surely recommend and will be happy to come back :-)


It was an excellent event. The children were excited and definitely want to come back.


We also recommended the event to our colleagues in Poland.


We will surely recommend. We arrived worried about how able will our disabled children will be to handle it all - mainly the transfers to their acommodation, to the sporting venues etc. However, our worries vanished right when we arrived at the station in Brno where buses were ready to pick us up and all organisers started taking good care of us.

Firstly, I must thank you for the beautiful time that we had in Brno. The organisation and people were on a really high level - everything was organised and well-prepared so we had no problems during our stay in Brno. Our students were excited and had much fun and are already asking when (not if) we are going back next year. We hope there will be place for our team next year too. Thank you again for all your help through our correspondence via email.

The Emil Open Games were an amazing experience for us. The children were excited and the organisation was perfect. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

Ivan Antov Gymnázium pro zrakově postižené a SOŠ pro zrakově postižené

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.

Eva Petrů ZŠ Kamenice nad Lipou

I would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity of participating in the European Youth Games for the Disabled Emil Open 2017. Our children were delighted, loved Brno and achieved amazing results. They competed in athletics and got 5 gold, 4 silver and 2 bronze medals. It was a great experience for them and finally they succeeded. They wear their Emil Open to school and share with their classmates the experience from the competitions and the sail on a steamboat.

I would be very happy if we could participate in the Games next year if you organise them again. I know that it is very difficult to organise such an event, but everything went well - so thank you for that. You have my respect.

Vendula Veselá DOZP Všebořice

I would like to thank everyone who helped organise this year´s Emil Open. Thank you for a great organisation, atmosphere, plastic raincoats during the Opening Ceremony, perfect sporting competitions, beautiful accommodation and very tasty meals, transport, all accompanying programme, which our children enjoyed. Our big thank you also goes to the volunteer Dominika Ulmanová, who took a good care of us during our whole stay at the Pod Palackého vrchem dormitory - she was always smiling and helpful. We were very pleased with the certificates and hand clappers. Thank you once again sooooo much. We will be happy to come again.
