Alenka Škreblin, Director of female national teams at the Basketball Federation of Slovenia:
The Basketball Federation of Slovenia and the company Thermana Laško, d. d., started their collaboration at the time of the EuroBasket 2013 event, which was until now the biggest sports event in Slovenia. The men's national team members from the first part of the competition, who had their matches in Celje, were staying at the Hotel Thermana Park Laško and were given all the conditions for the perfect accommodation and preparations for the matches. We then continued our cooperation in 2015, when we hosted the European Championship for girls up to 18 years. In the facilities of Thermana, d. d., 14 teams were accommodated. With the joint cooperation, assistance and mutual understanding in providing all the necessary services, the organisation of this championship has been marked to being at the highest level. Due to the positive feedback and understanding of the sport, our cooperation still continues. The women's national team, which is only a step away from the premiere rankings to the European Championship, has excellent conditions for accommodation. The staff is always smiling and is willing to help contribute to this goal. Also, our teams of the younger categories enjoy their stay in Laško. The good reputation has gone abroad, and this summer some men's basketball teams will complete part of their preparations for the big competitions in Laško.
