LIT has an impressive range of sports facilities for students, including three full size pitches and an all-weather playing pitch, as well as a fully equipped gy and indoor sports hall.
While development of sports facilities is on-going at the Tipperary campuses in Thurles and Clonmel, students have access to a wide range of sports facilities in both towns. In recent times, Thurles campus has developed a purpose built €3.7m, state of the art strength and conditioning building, known as the ‘SportsLab’. Among the facilities available in the 2,000 sq. metre facility are a unique 3D Organic Motion Capture Systems for motion analysis; a 45m, six lane sprint track specially designed to improve speed; a paralympic area; cable machines; a range of sport technology systems, including micro electro mechanical systems and GPS systems; Olympic lifting platforms; five functional screening kits; weights and the full range of exercise machines. It is one of the finest facilities available in the country and is designed to support our Sports Strength and Conditioning programmes. Many local club and inter-county teams have also availed of the superb facilities in the SportsLab.
