Dormant Account funding was secured through Longford Sports Partnership and Sport Ireland to develop a Community Sports Hub in Edgeworthstown.
Sports Hub Edgeworthstown was developed in 2018. Its main aim is to increase physical activity & provide more opportunities to become more active. It is a collection of progressive sports clubs and other local organisations that want to work together to improve sport offered in the local community. We have worked with clubs in the area to develop and promote their sport.
We run numerous activities which include Fitness Classes, Active Age classes, Chair Pilates, Yoga, Spin Classes, Table Tennis, Pickleball, Operation Transformation and many more.
We also work very closely with all of clubs such as Mostrim Badminton Club, Longford Smashers Volleyball and Longford Torpedo’s Basketball club to assist in promoting their clubs. We have run Come & Try sessions with these clubs with the aim of growing their numbers and potentially gaining new players for their clubs.
