After a number of years in the doldrums, Badminton under the guidance of Frank Costigan and Aine Madden, is undergoing a revival with well attended sessions on Monday and Thursday evenings. We have ladies and gents teams competing in the Tipperary Leagues. Last week the ladies won 3 to 1 against Drom, Thurles and the gents lost 3 to 1 away to Grange, Thurles. Therefore, come along and give it a try. Also attendance at Wednesday table tennis is improving.
