Tug of War is a non-contact sport where every member of the team is equal. It is a sport where teamwork is more important than any one individual. All that’s needed is a rope and runners or football boots. It can be pulled indoors in a sports hall or outside on the grass.
Tug of War Ireland is running a development project with schools around the country, co-ordinated by Con Hayes and tying in with the Active School Flag initiative as well as Local Sports Partnerships like the Cork Sports Partnership. Development officers are calling to schools and giving a demonstration to students. Participating schools receive a free junior tug of war rope to keep.
If you are working for a school that is interested in taking part in this program or would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact Tug of War Ireland.
