There are 13 ”Orlik” (Eaglet) football pitches operating in Lublin, which supplement school sports facilities. The pitches can be used by anyone who wants to play football, basketball, or meet with friends and together set up a sports team.
The purpose of the pitches is to popularise physical activity and sport, and to prevent aggression and pathology among children and youth by targeting those communities with a professional offer of sport and sport-and-recreational activities. The activities are conducted by qualified coaches employed by the Sport Department of the Lublin City Office and by the Physical Activity Development Foundation.
Please be informed that irrespective of the activities held by schools, between 1 March and 30 November 2015 all Orlik pitches situated in Lublin will be open, including summer holidays, virtually every day. They will be closed only on April 5th and 6th – on Easter, June 4th – Corpus Christi and November 1st – All Saints’ Day.
During the school year, the organisers taking care of the Orlik pitches will organise activities on workdays from 4 to 9 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on Sundays and holidays from 12 to 9 p.m. One exception is the Orlik pitch situated at Lower Secondary School No 2 at 11 Lwowska St., where activities will be held on workdays between 3 and 9 p.m. and on other days as stated above.
During summer holidays, activities will be organised on workdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on Sundays and holidays from 12 to 9 p.m.
