European Regional Development Fund
Our project represents cooperation and cross-border service development in active and sports tourism. Shareholders of the partner companies operating in Salgótarján and Lucenec have 30 years of cooperation. Their common passion and mission is tennis. They both have their own sports centre and association in the recreation areas of Salgótarján and Lucenec, which are twin cities. The LB’s sports and leisure centre is located in the recreation area of Salgótarján. Under the Modern Cities Programme of the Government large-scale sports investments are planned here. This creates a great opportunity for extending the existing leisure and catering functions being complementary services for sports and active tourism. The Slovak partner SME has its location in the sports and recreation zone of Lucenec, in the neighbourhood of sports facilities and the large City Park. Development plan of the city lays much focus on this area, offering further opportunities for B1 to extend and improve the sports and active touristic services for the growing number of visitors. Although the project partners are in very similar situation, they do not implement a mirror project, but with the introduction of new services having synergies widen the choice of active programmes so trying to prolong the stay of the visitors. With a common service package they are able to decrease the seasonal fluctuations, too. In Salgótarján leisure functions shall be strengthened with outdoor fitness, games (mini golf, table tennis, etc.) and event equipment. In Lucenec especially the sports capacities shall be increased with new tennis courts and tennis wall. Rent and small service of bicycles, as well as outdoor grill will provide new services for the Rocket Centre. Cross border impact shall be realized not only by complementary services, but also through the organisation of more common sports events and championships in which the partners have many years of experience.
