Not everything can be described in words - sometimes it
is better to just experience it. Ing. Jan Damek, the manager
of Sportplex, told us what you can experience there.
Mr. Damek, to start the interview, what resorts fall
Our business company Sportplex Frýdek-Místek, s.r.o.
operates several sports and recreational facilities in
Frýdek-Místek. We operate the Indoor and Summer
Aquapark Olešná, Autokemp Olešná, Hala Polárka,
swimming pool at 11th Elementary School, baseball
field, sports complex in Chlebovice, sports complex in
Zelinkovice and also the skatepark.
The above-mentioned aquapark Olešná is one of
the largest and most modern in the Czech Republic...
What features or unusual experiences attract people not
only from Frýdek Místek, but also surrounding towns?
The Olešná Aquapark offers residents and visitors fun
throughout the whole calendar year, both in the indoor
and summer aquapark.
The indoor aquapark offers the following attractions:
climbing net, bubble bath, swinging pool, jet channel,
water bed with air massage, massage jets in the pool
walls and water spouts and cannons. There is also
a large water slide with an elevation of 10 m and a
length of 90 m and a wild river that is 92.3 m long. One
of our wild rivers are really “wild” and entry is restricted
from the age of twelve. This attraction can turn calm
water into a huge flood within a minute, giving our
visitors a unique opportunity to experience what it’s
like to swim and be carried along by the current in such

During the summer months, our clients have
the opportunity to visit the summer aquapark, which
offers many additional attractions: water spout, water
cannon, air beds, water fountain, swinging pot, climbing
net, massage jets and jet channel. There are also two water
slides, one is 81.6 m long and the other one is 16.6 m long.
What are your plans for potential savings in these
challenging times and are you preparing any new
attractions for the future?
At the moment, we are focusing on potential savings,
especially on energy savings on water heating, the water
itself, and last but not least on electricity. There is a project
on the market that allows us to make savings in all of these
areas, and by purifying and filtering the water, we are also
putting it back into circulation. Currently, legislation tells
us that with every new visitor we have to replace a certain
number of litres of water with new water. You can imagine
what a waste it is. This project can purify the water and
return it back to the waterpark. This will bring savings on
electricity, reheating the water and also the water itself. As
for new attractions, we would like to move with the times
and we are exploring the possibility of getting 3D glasses
to ride our water slide in a 3D world! It works just like
other 3D glasses - you put them on before you go down
the indoor water slide and ride this entire slide with an
incredibly different and powerful experience.
Mr. Damek, thank you for the interview.
