The owner of Ślepsk and his family have all been passionate about sports for many years. Every day they are active: playing golf, football or volleyball and encouraging their employees and residents of Augustów to do so too.
It was in 2004, partly among the employees of Ślepsk, that the Ślepsk Augustów company sports club was formed, which laid the groundwork for the Plus League MKS Ślepsk Malow Suwałki team. The support of the team is one of the most important and most noted sponsorship activities of Ślepsk. In addition to volleyball, the Wiszniewski family has been promoting the sport of golf on their private golf course in Grabowo, where the Augustów Golf Club holds its tournaments. Ślepsk also provides financial and organizational support for the popular summer endurance boat race, called Necko Endurance.
ŚLEPSK MALOW SUWAŁKI MUNICIPAL SPORTS CLUB
Since its establishment in 2004, the Ślepsk Augustów Sports Club has climbed the league tables and changed the home court sites (Augustów, Raczki, Suwałki), its authorities, legal form, and name. The most recent change happened due to the move of the Club’s headquarters from Augustów to Suwałki. Today, MKS Ślepsk Malow Suwałki is a member of the highest Polish volleyball league, supported by more than 60 sponsors, with an annual budget of PLN 3 million and an exceptionally committed Fan Club.
