We would ask Clubs in North Tipp to make contact with their local schools to encourage participation in this competition. Tipperary holds a unique position in that it has its own indoor arena (only two exist in the Republic of Ireland) & we thank Nenagh Olympic A.C. for opening up its doors for this exciting new competition.
