Thirty Sporting Events Currently Taking Place as Part of
23rd September to 30th September 2017
Tullamore Sports Fest
In its inaugural year, Tullamore Sports Fest, a joint venture between Offaly County Council and Tullamore Chamber of Commerce has strived to improve awareness of sporting opportunity in the town. Evidence has been seen of this through a host of sporting events that have been organised in the town this week featuring a wide variety of sports from angling to hockey, from lawn bowls to basketball, from badminton to squash and so on.
This week of sport started last Saturday (23rd) and runs through to this Saturday (30th). It has been anticipated that the week of sporting events would give the people of Tullamore and its surrounding areas the motivation to lead a healthier lifestyle through increasing their levels of physical activity. Furthermore, the numerous sports clubs in Tullamore will benefit from an increase in members to ensure that they can survive and keep Tullamore’’s reputation for being a town that prides itself on its sporting opportunity and heritage.
The week of sport takes place in conjunction with the European Week of Sport, a week long celebration of sport throughout Europe. With over 34,000 events taking place in the continent over the next week, we are proud that Tullamore can say it played it's part in such a worthy initiative.
If you are only becoming aware of the Tullamore Sports Fest, it is not too late to get involved. There are plenty of events still to come such as free aqua aerobics, cycling, badminton, angling and more. To see a full list of what is left to come please visit www.facebook.com/tullamoresportsfest
