In 2020, TSP received funding from Sport Ireland to develop a Community Sports Hub in Tipperary Town. The aim of the project is to develop a vibrant and welcoming Community Sports Hub in Tipperary Town connecting the local people with the Canon Hayes Recreation Centre specifically those who are disadvantaged and inactive. It aims to increase participation in physical activity through the provision of education and training programmes, sporting opportunities and building the capacity of the Community Sport Hub. The project also aims to maximise usage of the sports facilities in the Canon Hayes Recreation Centre (Hub Site) through developing and strengthen linkages with local schools, community, sports clubs and other physical activity groups and enhancing the quality and accessibility of the facilities available.

The sports hub has run activities such as Tennis and Indoor soccer with Moorehaven and the Brothers of Charity. The Tipp Town Community Sports Hub has organised activities for the Tipperary Men’s shed. We have also run a 12 week activator pole programme for older adults and a Mum and baby exercise programme. All activities have taken place in the hub base; The Canon Hayes Recreation Centre.

The Sports Hub has also contributed to the gym in the Canon Hayes Centre through funding of new equipment for the gym. A new activity has been introduced in the Canon Hayes Centre The Teqball table . It's free on Sundays. Why not go down and try it out. Book in advance to ensure availability.
