This Saturday will see the culmination of months of work, fundraising and training for many when we host Clares Fittest Superstars in O'Garney Park Sixmilebridge. The event is part of our fundraising drive to build our new indoor arena, a 60m long x 30m wide steel clad building that is 18, 000 square feet in size with an astro turf surface, viewing gallery and wall balls internal and external, the first of its kind in the west of Ireland.
Progress to date has see the construction of the steel framework and internal walls with the next phase in the coming weeks set to see the building roofed and and fully enclosed. The main aim of Clares Fittest Superstars has been two fold:
1) To raise money to continue the development of the arena
2) To provide a unique event for all the family to enjoy as well as embracing the clubs policy on health and fitness. 92 participants (23 teams of 4) will take part this Saturday many of whom will honestly say this has helped change their lifestyle and given them the boost to start exercising again and living a healthier lifestyle.
This Saturday gates will open at 2pm for 5 hours of family fun which includes:
Target wall with spot prizes
Mini hang tough
Ice cream van
Fully licensed bar
Presentation to the winners will take place in the hall at 9pm with music by local band The Black Fridays.
