Edgeworthstown Sports Hub will be officially launched on Sunday, January 27 from 1pm-4pm.

The Sports Hub was developed as part of The National Physical Activity Plan in 2018.

Longford Sports Partnership secured funding for the Edgeworthstown Sports Hub following a competitive bids process through Sport Ireland which was accessed through The Dormant Accounts Fund.

The Hub gives the people of Edgeworthstown and surrounding area the chance to experience the benefit of The Sports Hub.

The Hub itself is located at St Mary’s Community Campus on the Granard road in Edgeworthstown.

Laura Doyle, Edgeworthstown Sports Hub Coordinator, said, “We are inviting members of the public to join us on the day at 1pm to help us launch The Sports Hub and we are delighted that our funders Sport Ireland and Longford Sports Partnership will join us on the day.

Laura says there will be lots of activities on the day. “On the day itself, we will have lots of free sports & activities open to the public to come and try from 1.15pm-4pm. Activities on the day include family yoga, zumba, chair pilates, Go For Life games, pickleball, badminton, parkour, circuit training for men and women, football and hurling to name a few.”

There will be lots of information provided on the day on upcoming programmes within The Sports Hub and information on sports club in Edgeworthstown.

The main objective of the Sports Hub is to increase the number of people of all ages participating in sport and physical activity.
