Jump Start Games, in association with the South Tipperary Sports Partnership, returns to the Fethard Ballroom on October 1.

Following on from the launch of these games in Fethard last February, and the enjoyable day the group from Fethard, Killenaule, Clonmel, Carrick-on-Suir had at the Go For Life National Games at Dublin City University in June, the group has decided to get back into the swing of things in Fethard.

The group play three games which are based on some of the activities played by Go for Life groups around the country: ‘Lobbers’ which is a target game adapted from petanque and boules; ‘Flisk’, adapted from boccia and horseshoe pitching; and ‘Scidils’, an adaptation of ten pin bowling with one skittle.

Participants are drawn from a number of local groups such as ICA, Active Retirement Associations, Probus and others but are open to anyone who would like to drop in for an hour or so of light competition mixed with a great social atmosphere and cup of tea to recharge the batteries afterwards.
